Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSERVER-631) Creation of entry with special (and escaped) character in RDN leads to wrong attribute value

Creation of entry with special (and escaped) character in RDN leads to wrong attribute value
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: DIRSERVER-631
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-631
     Project: Directory ApacheDS
        Type: Bug

    Versions: 1.0-RC3    
 Environment: ApacheDS 1.0 RC 3
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_04-b05)
Microsoft Windows XP version 5.1 Service Pack 1
    Reporter: Stefan Zoerner


If one creates an entry with a special character in its RDN value (e.g. #, <, ...) which
is escaped in the (R)DN, the resulting entries has the escape char (\) in its attribute value
as well. Example:

Creating this entry:

dn: cn=Bush\, Kate,dc=example,dc=com
objectclass: person
objectclass: top
sn: Bush
cn: Bush, Kate

like this

$ ldapmodify -h localhost -p 10389 -D "uid=admin,ou=system" -w ****** -a -f KateBush.ldif
adding new entry cn=Bush\, Kate,dc=example,dc=com

leads to an entry like that

$ ldapsearch -h localhost -p 10389 -b "dc=example,dc=com" -s sub "(sn=Bush)"
version: 1
dn: cn=Bush\, Kate,dc=example,dc=com
objectclass: person
objectclass: top
sn: Bush
cn: Bush\, Kate

The expected for cn is "Bush, Kate", as provided by the LDIF above. The same error occurs
with several characters (other than comma). I'll attach a JNDI JUnit test which demonstrates
the issue with test methods using different characters (and the test passes on other directory
servers).

Note: This problem may be related to DIRSERVER-628.
