Hi Justen!

As far as I know, you have to provide a value for uniqueMember which is 
has valid DN syntax ("" or " " have not). But it is not necessary to 
fill it with a valid user.

How about adding a dummy value to the group like "cn=dummy". This is 
what we did in a project with IBM Tivoli Directory Server, a server 
which behaves exactly the same RFC compliant way in this case, btw.
