Description Guenther Deschner 2003-10-09 15:59:42 UTC
when winbind in ads-mode queries for a distinguished name containing e.g. the
characters "\,", winbind does not use the (existing) character-escaping to send
a valid search-query to ads.

from the level 10 logs:
[2003/10/09 09:25:23, 3] libads/ldap.c:ads_do_paged_search(451)
Foo,CN=Users,DC=my,DC=ads-domain,DC=de)) -> Bad 
search filter
[2003/10/09 09:25:23, 3] libads/ldap_utils.c:ads_do_search_retry(60)
  Reopening ads connection to realm 'MY.ADS-DOMAIN.DE' after error Bad search filter

in that particular case "\," just should have been escaped to "\\," 

since the escaping is already in place in the same function, why not use it?
