  The documentation says that "chase referrals" is the default.
However, the callback is required if you want the referral to use the
same credentials as the original bind.  Because it just wouldn't make
sense for it to use the *same* credentials.

  Active Directory gets excited over this.  If you get a referral to the
same machine, it works.  If you get a referral to a different machine,
OpenLDAP binds anonymously, and therefore doesn't have the correct
permissions to do the search.
