Debug logging causes never ending loop whn decoding messages

      Description

      When a lookup for an entry is done with debug enabled the message decoding goes into a continuous loop till the search times out. This happens with OpenLDAP when the "ERR_00043_REMAINING_BYTES_FOR_DECODED_PDU The PDU has been fully decoded but there are still bytes in the buffer." error occurs

      I don't have a test case but a simple LdapConnection.lookup with debug logging enabled causes this.

      The fix looks pretty straightforward - the actual offending code is in org.apache.directory.shared.ldap.codec.protocol.mina.LdapProtocolDecoder.decode(). The buffer.position is set(:134) and reset(:145) without a mark being set.

      The workaround is to turn off debug logging for the "org.apache.directory" logger
