Hi,

I'm getting some strange errors when I launch Apache DS 1.5.2.

Any thoughts on that?


Yeah I saw this before and it's coming from the Entry API when used with Spring I think.  It may be due to some ways in which we had to deal with a chicken and egg issue with the context entries. 

Here's a thread on this same issue:
   http://directory.markmail.org/search/?q=Cannot%20normalize%20the%20value%20%3AEncountered#query:Cannot%20normalize%20the%20value%20%3AEncountered%20from%3A%22Alex%20Karasulu%22+page:1+mid:v4uhr2rex4y3hyrf+state:results

I think you can safely ignore it for now but we should eventually remove these messages so we don't freak users out.  That's my only worry - otherwise they're harmless.
