Map limit to map base option


I am using "base group" to map group principals.

When I added 8th principal mapping, I get an error when I try to start
nslcd. Looks like 7 is the max limit.

linux:/home/testuser # /sbin/nslcd  -d
nslcd: DEBUG: add_uri(ldaps://
nslcd: /etc/nslcd.conf:90: maximum number of base options per map (7) exceeded
linux:/home/testuser #

But, in the nslcd.conf man page
(, it says ...

base [MAP] DN

   Specifies the base distinguished name (DN) to use as search base.
This option may be supplied multiple times and all specified bases
will be searched.

Why is this restriction of 7 mappings only ?
