Thanks for your reply. You're right, it's my fault. I overlooked this new
option since 3.0.21 in "whatsnew.txt". Maybe it should also be mentioned in
the explicite "Changes to passdb backend" section. ;-)
Now I have one question: According to an old diskussion
it sounds like macro-expansion for the ldap-backend is something like
an "undocumented feature". Is this right and may it disappear in the future?
