Differences in LDB and LDAP behavior

Hi Tridge,

While working on the LDB registry backend (got read-only support
almost working!), I noticed a difference between ldapsearch and
ldbsearch. I'm not sure which of the two is actually broken (or
perhaps this is caused by my limited knowledge of LDAP...).

ldapsearch -Y GSSAPI -s one -b ou=Machines,dc=vernstok,dc=nl "(objectClass=*)"

SASL/GSSAPI authentication started
SASL username: jelmer at VERNSTOK.NL
SASL installing layers
# extended LDIF
# LDAPv3
# base <ou=Machines,dc=vernstok,dc=nl> with scope one
# filter: (objectClass=*)
# requesting: ALL

# charis, Machines, vernstok.nl
dn: uid=charis,ou=Machines,dc=vernstok,dc=nl
uid:: Y2hhcmlzIA==
objectClass: account
objectClass: top

# search result
search: 4
result: 0 Success

# numResponses: 2
# numEntries: 1

Now with ldbsearch:

ldbsearch -s one -H tdb://foo.tdb -b ou=Machines,dc=vernstok,dc=nl

# returned 2 records
# record 1
dn: ou=Machines,dc=vernstok,dc=nl
objectClass: top
objectClass: organizationalUnit
ou: Machines

# record 2
dn: uid=charis,ou=Machines,dc=vernstok,dc=nl
uid:: Y2hhcmlzIAA=
objectClass: account
objectClass: top

As you can see, ldbsearch returns the basedn we're searching as well. 
(the ldap database and the tdb database contain the same records)
