I'm not sure if a simple 'skip it' approach is the right one. Shouldn't it print/log a warning at least? Do you know all implications? Are you sure that this will not break something else silently?

(BTW isn't the right approach to fix python-ldap? Or is it a quirk in AD?)
AD DC often answers with proper result and then several referrals to
other internal resources to complement the search if you are asking for
wide-open search (default). We are not interested in these referrals for
various reasons, including the fact that we are looking at the
authoritative DC and it has all the needed info.

At best, we could define an option that forces us doing referral chasing
to fetch remaining results but this is not something really needed right
