Hi all,

if one by accident points the ldbsearch command to any file, which is 
not a ldb file, this file is silently converted to a tdb file ;-) .

root at dc0:~# file /tmp/t2.ldif
/tmp/t2.ldif: ASCII text

root at dc0:~# ldbsearch -H /tmp/t2.ldif
# returned 0 records
# 0 entries
# 0 referrals

root at dc0:~# file /tmp/t2.ldif
/tmp/t2.ldif: TDB database version 6, little-endian hash size 10000 

This behaviour my be OK for ldbadd/ldbmodify. But for a search command?

Samba version is:
Version 4.1.11-Debian
