  canonicalisation in OpenLDAP

  have more flexibility with assigning group permissions
* fix logic error when falling back to getting ranged attribute values
  for possibly binary attributes (thanks scan-build)
* fix a problem when storing a negative hit in the dn2uid cache (thanks
* use poll() instead of select() for checking file descriptor activity
