What of openldap-2.0.6 doesn't work?  I guess I should try :)

The last one is what it is looking for.

It should be something like "o=My_Company, ln=ZA" or somesuch.
Its the same as ldapsearch's -b option.  In the following example:
'ldapsearch "cn=Berend De Schouwer" -b "dc=ucs, dc=co, dc=za"'
I would add "dc=ucs, dc=co, dc=za".

I am playing around with not requiring a base domain name.  It works
if there is only one base domain name - it might get confused if your
LDAP server has multiple directories.
