LDAP distinguished name escaping

Thanks for the pointer Arran,

For reference, I replaced:

base_dn = "%{reply:Tmp-String-0}"


base_dn = &reply:Tmp-String-0

in the ldap module and the string is no longer escaped!

Cheers, Rob

Yeah, just use an attribute reference i.e. &my-attribute, in place of the double quoted string in the config.

Only a small subset of config items work with it though.
