This is great and solves the original problem. The only problem I am 
finding is that if I happen to have a wildcard filter such as...

(objectClass=*) or (cn=*jens*)

the replacement of '*' with r'\2a' seems problematic. I'm not getting 
the expected results, as a maatter of fact I am not getting any results.
