Evolution (here version 3.38 and 3.42) seems to ignore a manual base

uid=elvis,dc=gotten,dc=heim.  Is there a way to make Evolution
respect the additional ou -Entry? Adding it manually to the base dn
does not help.

as far as I can tell, the search base DN from the LDAP book Properties
->Using LDAP tab->Search Base entry is used when creating new contacts.

You can see what's happening in the background when you run the address
book factory with LDAP debugging on:

   $ LDAP_DEBUG=1 /usr/libexec/evolution-addressbook-factory -w

and then run Evolution. The actual path can differ in your
distribution. There should be shown lines like:

    Sending the following to the server as ADD
    Adding DN: .....

when the debugging is on.
