	I would like that it would be better to get 2.2 to rebind correctly.

	I know Andrew did ask someone to try and fix this problem, which has 
something to do with a change in OpenLDAP, but currently all focus is on 
head ... which means, if I impliment another upgrade, it's awhole lot of 
new problems which I am going to run into ...

	Thanks for your idea.
