I had some bad written code (from my self ☺) where I’ve tried to set
a description (18.104.22.168) attribute with an empty string (“”).

Works as designed:
The LDAP syntax Directory String does not allow a null/empty string.
Only LDAP syntax IA5String allows null string (but does not allow anything
else than ASCII).
I consider relying on null strings to be a design flaw.
