mod_auth_ldap documentation default scope is wrong

           Summary: mod_auth_ldap documentation default scope is wrong
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.45
          Platform: Other
               URL: http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_auth_ldap.html
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: RDruker@RohmHaas.com


According to the documentation at http://httpd.apache.org/docs-
2.0/mod/mod_auth_ldap.html, for the AuthLDAPUrl Directive, scope:

scope 
The scope of the search. Can be either one or sub. Note that a scope of base is 
also supported by RFC 2255, but is not supported by this module. If the scope 
is not provided, or if base scope is specified, the default is to use a scope 
of sub.

The documentation says "base" is not supported and that "sub" is the default.
However, when I tried specifying only a basedn and an attribute in the URL, the 
authentication kept failing.  I finally discovered, running httpd in debug 
mode, that the default is "base", not "sub", and you must explicitly 
specify "sub" if you want it.

Output from error log, before specifying "sub" in the URL:

[Wed Apr 23 08:45:37 2003] [debug] mod_auth_ldap.c(764): [3259] auth_ldap url 
parse: scope: base

So I guess base is supported and is the default and the documentation should be 
updated.
