I've edebugged it further.  It appears the problem is in the function 
ldap-search-internal, which is always returns a list, the car of which is the

+       (cdr (nreverse result))))))
 (provide 'ldap)
The downside of this patch is that if there is no match, there is no obvious 
feedback to the user.  I thought about only removing the initial nil if the 
length is greater than 1 but that breaks looping on a search over multiple
