    Description

      Looks like some of the new normalizers like this one do not know how to handle byte[]s. This is very bad and compare operations will all fail because these normalizers must be passed a byte[] by the compare handling of the server. Note that CompareContext uses a byte[] for the value being compared regardless of the human readibility of the attributeType's syntax.

      Example referred to above:

      Emmanuel can you take a look at this one for me or at least comment on it - I figure you know best the normalizer you added a while back. But however I wanted to also ask if there is a better way to solve this than I did above. I guess I can make the compare operation figure out what to give the normalizer. Anyways I think we're going to be in a great possition soon when we do all this Value and ServerEntry stuff - these kinds of problems will never happen again.
