I haven't tested with 1.0, please use 1.5.4.

You get this error using Studio, right?

I also get this error when using Studio, however this is an issues of
Studio, call it bug or feature ;-). When opening the connection Studio
tries to fetch all available namingContexts (ou=system, ou=schema) and
the schema (cn=schema). However with activated access control the server
rejects this with error 50. So one option is to allow the read access to
these trees using ACIs. But we have to consider to change studio to not
search for those entries or to pop up this messages.

Anyway, when I click away the error message it works fine. Horatio
Nelson could browse and edit the o=sevenSeas tree. And other sailors
could browse, but not edit and don't see the userPassword attribute.

Could you test please?

Kind Regards,
