I would have done it if that would be an option. Apart from the fact 
that my Apache DS runs on my local host and winpcap not being able to 
capture packets on the looback interface (on Windows) I am not familiar 
with LDAP enough to be able to judge what "searchRequest::typesOnly" is 
or means.

Nevertheless thanks, I'm going to open a bug with the Apache DS team.
