| I just tried it using the data you supplied and it worked fine for me.

| Are you sure that the entry "ou=Group,dc=carambole,dc=com" exists and is OK?

| 
| When I get some time I'll play with it some more and try to track it down.  
| If all else fails I suggest a slapcat/slapadd just in case...

Florian Friesdorf pointed out that I may have forgotten to run the
migrate_base.pl script from the MigrationTools supplied by www.padl.com.
And indeed he was right.
