Bug 10925: LDAP auth fails if DEBUG is enable

Figured out how to test this....

I set up an LDAP server on my koha VM:
$ sudo apt-get install ldap-server
$ sudo slapcat
The second entry's 'dn' line will be important in setting up LDAP authentication.

Made sure to set up the koha-conf.xml
 <useldapserver>1</useldapserver><!-- see C4::Auth_with_ldap for extra configs you must add if you want to turn this on -->
<ldapserver id='ldapserver'  listenref='ldapserver'>
<firstname    is='givenname'></firstname>
<surname      is='sn'> </surname>
<address      is='postaladdress'>3900 University Blvd</address>
<city         is='l'>Tyler, TX</city>
<zipcode      is='postalcode'>75799</zipcode>
<branchcode   is=''>MNL</branchcode>
<userid       is='cn'></userid>
<password     is=''></password>
<cardnumber   is='extensionattribute2'></cardnumber>
<email        is='userprincipalname'></email>
<categorycode is=''>PT</categorycode>
<phone        is='telephonenumber'>903-566-7343</phone>
<dateenrolled is=''>2011-03-27</dateenrolled>
<dateexpiry   is=''>2011-05-13</dateexpiry>

It is important to get the patron type and branch code to match something in your DB. Notice the principle_name line is similar to the second entry's 'dn' line.

And yes, I was lazy setting it up and used ldap123 as the password for the admin account. And since I didn't know how to set up any other accounts, I just used the admin account.

I then proceeded to log in using OPAC.

#SetEnv DEBUG 1
delete patron
log in, log out, log in, log out (previously exist or not cases)

SetEnv DEBUG 1
delete patron
log in, log in (previously exist or not cases)


Signed off. YAY!

Bug 10925: LDAP auth fails if DEBUG is enable

To reproduce:
1/ Edit your apache virtual host and set the DEBUG environment variable
(SetEnv DEBUG 1).
2/ Try to login with an ldap user
3/ You will be redirected to the 500 error page.
The Koha logs contains:
malformed header from script. Bad header=------------------------------: mainpage.pl

The hashdump routine directly punks to the STDOUT (!) and breaks the
It appears Net::LDAP::?->dump does the same thing.

Maybe we can kill C4::Utils after getting rid of this

That's what 10927 does. I've signed it off. It is awaiting QA.
