[Mono-dev] System.DirectoryServices and LdapReferralException

I'm trying to connect up to an Active Directory and run a search and I
get a LdapReferralException.  For example, I am running a query on the
host "adserver.coversant.net" and while iterating through search results
I get a referral exception for
"LDAP://coversant.net/CN=Configuration,DC=coversant,DC=net".  The
configuration DN does not even have nodes in it that match the filter I
was searching on.
I also tried to search the directory by using the Novell.Directory.Ldap
classes directly and was able to reproduce the same exception.  I
compared the results received before the exception to the results from
Microsoft's System.DirectoryServices and they were identical.

Maybe Mono's System.DirectoryServices should be ignoring this referral?
Any thoughts?
