In LDAP, different attributes are separated by a comma, so you must distinguish when 
you use a comma in the middle of the attribute.  This means a comma in the middle of 
the attribute must be escaped.  Sorry for the confusion.  Hope this clears it up.

What about the other commas?  I'm not that familiar with LDAP specs, so
this may be a stupid question, but why are you escaping only the first
