Subject Problem creating a root context with two RDNs

objectclass: top
objectclass: dcObject
objectclass: organization
dc: example
o: Example Inc
adding new entry "dc=example,dc=com"

"dc=example,dc=com", but the DN editor seems to require me to add each RDN
at the time, eg "dc=com" first and then when that exists, I can specify
"dc=example" with "dc=com" as parent. But adding just "dc=com" obviously
fails with "Server is unwilling to perform (53): no global superior
