Yes, it's fixed in CVS. If you want to check out the HEAD revision of the ldappc software and use that you won't have a problem.

Alternatively, you can just check out the HEAD revision of (in src/java/edu/internet2/middleware/ ldappc) that's where the fix is.

Apparently a change in the Grouper API broke some carelessly written code in ldappc.

That's bug <>, and I believe Kathryn will have it fixed in the next release. There's a workaround, and there is a patch (I think). Hopefully Kathryn will fill us in...

Check error log file, correct the problem, and resubmit.
Any ideas what may cause this?
