The problem you are having is not specific to python-ldap, nor Lotus LDAP.

Be the DN '' (an empty string) or ' ' (A space) or '    ' (Lots of spaces)
it's the DN of the root of the tree on that LDAP server.

I suggest attempting the following against the Lotus Domino LDAP.
ldapsearch -h LDAPServer -x -b '' -s base 'objectclass=*'
This will return the LDAP entry for the root of the tree, which may or may not
contain anything interesting.

Now look one level further down.
ldapsearch -h LDAPServer -x -b '' -s one 'objectclass=*'
Which will probably show all of groups.
