This is certainly not a LDAP primer either. It's more about how to use
ApacheDS, assuming you have a minimum education on LDAP.

Sadly, it's hard to get this education anywhere, so we most certainly
have to improve the doco.

We have to add some note about such an error and what it does mean. But
more important, we should avoid providing such cryptic errors.

The best is to ask here. You can try any other product, it's really up
to you here.

Let me tell you one thing : we are not perfect, far from it, and we
mostly depend on people wanting to help fixing those imperfections. This
is how it works. I know how frustrating it can be to face such
ridiculous problems, especiallay when you are a newbie. That's life.

Anyone can contribute, and it may even been some fix in the
documentation. This is not such a big effort. But it's up to you, again ;-)
