Also worthy to note that JNDI is in general broken, poorly (if ever) 
maintained, and the current people working on it at Sun broke it in the 
1.6.0_u17 release, and it remains broken in 1.6.0_u18, because they don't 
understand BER.  Thankfully I was able to show them their error, and they 
are working on a fix, but I don't know which release will have it.

Anyone I've worked with who uses Java soon abandons JNDI because of these 
and other issues (custom controls, new RFC's, etc etc etc etc etc).
