Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSERVER-1247:
----------------------------------------------

Hi Norval,

we just released 1.5.4 last week-end, and moved to 1.5.5 just now, still dealing with some
build issues.

This issue is next on my list, but I just want to deal with the Jdbm issue first...

> The current Dn and filter handling is overly restrictive in that all non-ascii characters
are quoted using the \NN syntax. This is probably due to rfc 2253 being unclear about the
fact that multibyte UTF-8 encoded values can be used, but this iss further clarified in rfc
4514 which superceeds 2253. The application of unrequired quoting makes debugging / reading
logs much harder then it should be, as it requires manual calculations rather then just setting
the file encoding on your log file / IDE windows to being UTF-8.
> I have attached a patch file with the required updates to code and unit tests under /shared/ldap
(some problems i had noted with earlier AD version due to unspecified encoding when converting
bytes to / from Strings had already been tidied up in AD 1.5.4).
