There are three places where the allowAnonymousAccess flag should be set 
in the server.xml file :
- defaultDirectoryService
- ldapServer
- apacheDS

Obviously, this is a little bit overkilling :)

We should fix that...

Being able to bind as anonymous and being able to fetch an entry out of 
the server are two different things. In fact, you can even do a search 
on the server without being forced to send a BindRequest (the rootDSE is 
searchable with an anonymous authorization). Now, if the Anonymous 
access is forbidden, you will get an access violation when earching the 
server, except when looing for the rootDSE attributes.

Basically, yes. I have to double check about the anonymous Bind, but as 
we are currently working on this part of the server, this will be 
figured out soon.

Thanks !
