The best would be for us to have a copy of your configuration and LDIF 
files ( if there nothing confidential about of course). Also note that 
we are currently working on releasing a 1.5.4 version very soon (it's a 
matter of days), so if there are important bugs in this area, it's the 
perfect timing to fix them right now.

Waiting to get more infor from your part.

And thanks for using ADS, btw !
