           Summary: Missing parameter to control LDAP referral chasing
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.4
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_ldap
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: massimiliano.calandrelli@gmail.com

Referral chasing is an optional feature of a LDAP connection. Maybe because of a
buggy openldap library, maybe because of mod_ldap behaviour, referrals are
chased without a bind DN, even if specified in apache config files.
This leads to an error code 1 returned from LDAP library code to mod_ldap, which
in turn gives up searching the user.
Since Active Directory integration becomes impossible (AD always send referrals)
unless you can turn it off.
This change allows to do so without changing system-wide or user-related
defaults, adding the configuration flag "LDAPChaseReferrals" and the code to
handle it.
