OK, here is the problem, if you rename a PC on Windows, everything gets 
changed except for the DN, cn, name and distinguishedName attributes, 
but on Linux, if you use ldbrename, exactly the opposite happens.

Myself and Louis discovered this whilst trying to write a script to fix 
the problem, we could not understand why we got different results, he 
would rename a PC and the script would then rename it back again ;-)
