Okay, so I have the derefSpec for requests worked out, and they are working fine. Still not sure why I am not getting the deref control in responses.
nhosoi_: I'm actually suspicious of python ldap now. I can see the request control working, I've added some hooks to deref.c, and I can see the sucessful operation and controls being added
But no result ever makes it back to the python library.
I'll contact their mailing list and ask where to go from here.
