	Don't just give up on 2.2, I am try and testing the patch

	But if you are using a new OpenLDAP, I think 2.0.20 and above, please 
don't quote me on that number.  Will need to remove the ", Null" from 
the ldap_set_rebind_proc, because they don't have a thrid parameter.

	I am about to test whether this works, which I believe one other person 
on the Samab List said he had good results.

	The only thing, if this works, which I need to try and figure out, 
which Herb Lewis has sent me a patch which I have not looked at yet, is 
get the autoconf stuff working, so that this can become standard in 2.2 
... I think it would be good if we put something in the docs at the 
moment about Samba 2.2 & Referrals not working ... at least for the moment.
