I can' believe as was _so wrong_ !!! This method is just used aroung 900 
times in the server. Modifying it would break it completly, and would 
take days to fix it back...

So far, I have created a new JIRA issue about this problem, but it's not 
likely to be fixed soon.

In the meantime, ust use getUpName().

Again, sorry. As a defense, I will argue that LdapDN is _not_ intended 
to be used from the outside of the server (yes, I know, this is a 
pathetic excuse :-/ )
