Hi Jeff!

At least for this one. I was able to reproduce this error and recommend 
not to use '...' for the -D argument, but "..." (actually, for all of 
the args!).

Which OS and LDAP clients do you use? I was able to reproduce it on 
Windows XP with the IBM TivoliDS LDAP client:

C:\>ldapsearch -h magritte -p 10389 -b "ou=users,ou=system" -s base -D 
'uid=admin,ou=system' -w secret "(objectclass=*)"
ldap_simple_bind: Invalid credentials

C:\>ldapsearch -h magritte -p 10389 -b "ou=users,ou=system" -s base -D 
"uid=admin,ou=system" -w secret "(objectclass=*)"

The same effect does not happen e.g. on Solaris9/bash with Suns own 
ldapsearch. Here it doesn't matter whether one uses -D '...' or -D "..." 
(this is why the example docs probably worked for the author, s/he used 
a different environment).

Tell us whether it works for you now when you use -D "...". If yes, we 
should update the examples.
