Subject [jira] Created: (DIRSERVER-815) Value of matchedDN keeps leading spaces, if add opeartion fails due to missing parent

Value of matchedDN keeps leading spaces, if add opeartion fails due to missing parent

                 Key: DIRSERVER-815
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.5.0
         Environment: * ApacheDS 1.5.0 (SNAPSHOT)
* Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_07-b03)
* Windows XP Professional SP2
            Reporter: Stefan Zoerner
            Priority: Minor

If I try to add an entry with DN "cn=Fiona Apple, ou=missing, dc=example, dc=com" (spaces
are important), and the parent entry "ou=missing, dc=example, dc=com" does not exist, the
operation fails with the correct result code (32: no such object).  

LDIF-File Fiona.ldif:
dn: cn=Fiona Apple, ou=missing, dc=example, dc=com
objectclass: person
objectclass: top
sn: Apple
cn: Fiona Apple

$ ldapmodify -h localhost -p 10389 -D "uid=admin,ou=system" -w ******-q -c -a -f Fiona.ldif
ldap_add: No such object
ldap_add: matched:  dc=example, dc=com
ldap_add: additional info: failed to add entry cn=Fiona Apple,ou=missing,dc=example,dc=com:
Parent  ou=missing, dc=example, dc=com not found

But the value of the matchedDN field starts with a blank (it is "_dc=example,_dc=com", '_'
denotes a blank). This behavior is present in the current 1.5 SNAPSHOT only. In the 1.0 release,
the matchedDN value is "dc=example,_dc=com", which is the expected result.

Unfortunately I was not able to reproduce this problem with JNDI yet. JNDI seems to modify
the matchedDN result in the NameNotFoundException. But with Netscape SDK the problem is reproducible.
