This is maybe because the attributes we fill are ASCII strings.

Jerry: we should move some attributes in the new LDAP schema to
directory strings (utf-8)

and in pdb_ldap we should take care of which fields we can fill with utf-8 
and which not...

directoryString   UTF-8 string
IA5String        ASCII string
