Yeah, somebody was nitpicking the snippet of server.xml that he had
there, where the thing they were nitpicking was really just a typo in
the bug report.  I have indeed seen this issue and for a while was
frustrated with the userSubtree functionality.  Like I say, it is a
rights issue, and it may have to still be dealt with in some way or
another.  It might result in a fundamentally different way of doing the
search in JNDIRealm than the current code.  I don't know, I'll
investigate when I get some time.

Oh, I was confusing this with bug #11210, also dealing with Netscape.
