Removing a user from a group shouldn't produce that error either. You
remove a user from a group by deleting the 'member' attribute
containing the users DN from the groups object, this will also delete
the 'memberof' line from the users object. As far as I am aware,
neither of these deletions should end up tombstoned because they are
not 'objects'
