likely he is missing a 'binddn' and 'bindpw' config setting. The initial bind() will try
anonymously if those are not set. What I usually do for Active Directory is create a user
specifically for use with Net::LDAP (and by extension, C::A::Store::LDAP), and then do all
my initial binds with that user/pass.

'binddn' and 'bindpw' are fully documented; if the docs can be improved, please send a patch.
