Windows version 0.8.1.  If anyone gets a chance the current version 
might come in handy in Help->About LDAP Studio.

Sure, no problem.

I will give these suggestions a try and get back to the list by weeks 
end.  I'll probably Jira the network dump.

Yes sorry, no disrespect intended :)

If it helps your efforts I've been using Jarek Gawor's LDAP browser for 
what seems like the last 10 years.  I've not found anything faster or

decision and the tool overall is fantastic.  Kudos to the team.
