[snip "working" 2.0.x config]

	Kind of verified - obviously not an Apache or LDAP bug (both are
doing exactly what they should for a "normal" LDAP implementation), as I
pretty much stated, but an AD bug.  Some poor guy using PHP ran into it,
and of course Microsoft is saying "Yeah, we know about it, but why
should we fix it?":;en-us;275523;en-us;321360

	Rainer: In your configuration, your letting in any "valid" user.
In mine, I'm trying to isolate usage to specific groups.  That's where
the "bug" pops up.  The only workaround I can see so far is, unless
you're in one of those rare cases where Default Group is important, is
to add the person to a different (possibly "dummy") default group.
	I know there are other mods out there that do SMB or AD (say,
through PAM) authentication - but last I checked, none advertised 2.2.x
