Now let us assume that the value of the attribute 'middleName' for a
particular dn is 'Konda'. Then performing a search on the basedn with
the filter "(name=Konda)" returns that particular dn. Is this a bug or
It's a feature, not a bug. Just like filter (title=foo) will match
attribute "title;lang-en: foo". See RFC 4511 section 22.214.171.124, which
refers to matches of "the attribute type or subtype".
Similarly, if 'name' is listed as one of the attributes to be returned,
'middleName' will be returned. And cn, sn, title, givenName.
