There's a problem with your patch:
It does not handle attrlist=None correctly.

This script fails with:
TypeError: expected list of strings or None

--------------------- snip ---------------------
import ldap

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

--------------------- snip ---------------------

Could you please send in a revised patch *soon*?

I definitely don't want to automagically replace attrlist=None by attrlist=['*']
in the Python wrapper class because some LDAP servers may (incorrectly) treat
these cases differently.

Ciao, Michael.
