>          Issue Type: Improvement

>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 2.0.0
> The current implementation and handling of LdapStrings does not support characttres which
are above unicode 0xFFFF. Even if Strings are translated to UTF-8 before being transfered
to the server, we still convert them back to String inside the server. Some of those UTF-8
bytes may be encoded into 2 chars (if the UTF-8 bytes sequence contains 4 to 6 bytes), but
all the manipulations of those Stri,g does not take into account such characters.
> For instance, the DN parsing is based on single chars, and surrogates are not handled
at all.
> Even if not really important, because extended chars are not very common, this is something
that should be fixed in 2.0
