LdapPerson module is successfully loaded!

Hmml, there is no utf8.

I found the following while I search for the solution and before I read you
the ldap does not set the utf8 flag (I don't know why) so I tried to ask it
to set the flag.
I used the *raw => qr/(?i:^jpegPhoto|;binary)/ *option at the bind, but it
just confused the thing, because it converted to utf8.
I also tried to use several utf8, unicode modules without success.

But I don't know the solution.
