Actually, I just googled 'inetorgperson jpegPhoto' to check that it was
not an issue with the schema, and directly found DIREVE-163 on an
archive  mail ! Funny ... I didn't took a chance on JIRA (I'm too

Thanks a lot !

'Organized' is not exactly the perfect word ;) Don't worget that it's a
0.9.1 version, so ...

yep ;( 

Even now, I didn't succeeded to reproduce your problem, because I didn't
found a place to start the debugging ;) As I switched from eclipse 3.0
to 3.1 this week, I didn't had time to go very far with your bug, but
maybe next week? 
However, if you want to dig the pb, the point is that you are to dive
very deep into the ASN.1 stuff, which is quite convoluted. 

I do think that the reason why you bytes are transformed to '?' may be
related to this class :

where you will find something like :
L 84:         // Add the attribute
L 85 :        attrs.put( id, new String( octets ) ) ;

the new String( octets ) may really 'kills' bytes, for sure ...

I'm not 100% positive about it be the reason, but I feel unconfortable
with it.

If you feel in the mood to add a test case in
you may test this hypothesis...

btw, it would be much better to post directly to the dev-list, so you
may share your feelings with all of us, which is always good ;)

Enjoy you friday !
