Following LDAP referrals?

I want to have certain users who have valid accounts across all my systems
(myself, for instance), so I set up an LDAP referral to an LDAP database 
containing those accounts.  This works fine for Unix logins, but doesn't work 
for samba logins.  This is because ldap_search_for (in ldap.c) calls 
ldap_search_s with a scope of LDAP_SCOPE_ONELEVEL instead of LDAP_SCOPE_SUBTREE.

Is there a good reason for using LDAP_SCOPE_ONELEVEL or can this be changed to 

Also, a related question.  It looks like users and groups are expected to be 
in the same part of the LDAP tree.  Would it be possible to put them in 
separate places?
