I was discussing this with Dmitri this morning. I propose that we should
probably do the following:

After retrieving the user entry, verify whether the entry contains at
least one memberOf attribute. If it does, continue processing as we do
now (since it will be more efficient). If not, then we should slip into
compatibility mode where we will search all groups for member=<userdn>

Does this seem sensible?
