	I do not have this in my configuration, and dovecot does indeed use the
credential I provide to successfully query LDAP for the user based on
the (mail=%u) criteria.  However, it does not see the reply.
	The fact that it does perform the query successfully implies to me that
it does not use an anonymous connection.  Very puzzling.
