Just curious, what project are you working on?

Can you please post repr(mlist)?

These are dictionaries, not lists!

Probably you have to use ldap.MOD_REPLACE in mlist for attribute
OpenLDAPaci instead of ldap.MOD_DELETE. Not sure if usage of
ldap.modlist.modifyModlist() in every case.

But first turn on python-ldap's debugging by setting trace_level=2 when
calling ldap.initialize() and post the output.

l = ldap.initialize('ldap://localhost:1390',trace_level=2)

Ciao, Michael.
