[Bug 315241] Re: Mangles MAC in ethers lookup

A manual search using ldapsearch yielded the correct results, e.g.

  ldapsearch ... -b cn=ethers,dc=foo "(macAddress=11:22:33:44:55:66)"

returned the correct entry from the server.

** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: libnss-ldap
  
  http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=310563
  
  This bug occurs on Hardy.
  
- 'getent ethers hostname' properly looks up a machine, but when the client issues 'getent ethers 00:00:00:00:00:00' 
- the LDAP server reveals that the filter is "(&(objectClass=ieee802Device)(macAddress=0:0:0:0:40:54))". The bug occurs on both i386 and amd64.
