But it is not clear if this bug is in the clients or in Kolab's use
of ldap.

Yes, thanks for giving the issue, it is waiting for Martin's comment,
because he did the design of the ldap schema.

The Thunderbird plugin is in development, so far it is not a full
Kolab2 client yet.

It might be hard to fix, though.
I used to have problems with Mozilla's use of ldap before
and it depends on if that code was completely overhauled meanwhile
or not.
