Don't know about apache studio, but I've often had this sort of error 
with command line ldapmodify when I've copied a windoze or os2 based 
ldif file to unix and then updated it there. In almost every case, I've 
tracked it down to a cr/lf problem.

If this is possible in your case, edit the file under linux; go to EVERY 
single end-of-line position and delete characters until the next line 
concatenates with the current one; hit return. (repeat for every line, 
including the last empty line).

Hope that helps!
