This should probably be split into two cases.

While we still have the problem of 'how do I get past cryptic client
messages', the particular case here was easily solved by a comparative
trace with windows.  

The issue is that we would include an entry:
    objectClasses: ( NAME 'top' SUP top ABSTRACT..
The MMC Active Directory Users and Computers snap in presumably
objected to the 'loop' this would present. The fixed entry is:
    objectClasses: ( NAME 'top' ABSTRACT...

Now, the new resolution I would like is for this someone to find where
this should be documented in MS-ATDS and to call out the semantics here
very carefully (that top must not be SUP 'top', despite being so
indicated in the full schema). 

Also, an indication of the semantics of modifyTimeStamp on this entry
would be worthwhile.  I generate these attributes on the fly, so this
value will not normally change (even with schema updates) - but ADUC
very specifically reads this value.  Does it implement a cache of some
kind, and therefore how must this change after schema updates?
