We use the NLDAP-C# quite heavily. As an FYI, the NLDAP-C# was created
by Novell (~2003) in a different repository around the time Ximian was
The version of NLDAP-C# in the mono repo was forked and had some Java
"stuff" added to it.  Not all of the bug fixes added to the Novell repo
made it back into the mono repo after the fork.  The mono repo could use
a refresh.
An example of that is your reported bug.  It does not exist in the
Novell copy.
Comparing the Mono SVN copy of the code to the Novell CVS
        Array.Copy((System.Array) SupportClass.ToByteArray(utf8Bytes),
0, (System.Array)SupportClass.ToByteArray( octets), iOctets,
        Array.Copy((System.Array) (utf8Bytes), 0, (System.Array)
octets, iOctets, utf8Bytes.Length);
As for the C# naming guidelines... the entire project source is
fubared.... probably best to leave alone.
You can find the Novell copy here and perform a sync to take the bits
you want.

Nitpicking: the unescapeString method should have an uppercased U (to
the C# naming guidelines), so you might want to fix that while you're
On the other hand, maybe the concerned class contains other methods
this way, so there may be more to fix... *shrugs*

By the way, personally, I use the diff command through cygwin in order
generate patches, and I think TortoiseSVN generates patches in the
same format. Actually, I'll start doing it through TortoiseSVN from now
it's easier. :)
