I've now updated against the nightly repo.  When I add a domain I can
see that various entries were added in ldap (new dc, new ous, etc).

When I go to the users tab, I still only see the "people" ou on the
original domain, and not the new domain.

I don't see any way to add a user inside the new domain.

I am guessing I need to make some changes to kolab.conf - perhaps with
the base_dn settings and others? I am not sure.
