As a workaround, put an ACL on the new subtree that blocks the 
radius server from seeing the entries. 

As a future solution, perhaps the ldap module can be enhanced to use
uri's rather than filters. A search uri contains server name, filter 
and scope all in one package. LDAP uri's are already supported in the 
xlat module so adding support to rlm_ldap should be possible.
