    Default Duplicate members cause some groups to fail

    I've installed oxldapsync from http://software.open-xchange.com/OX6...po/DebianEtch/ on a lenny-based OX6 system. Although this setup is not supported, I think my observation might be of interest:

    When I sync groups from LDAP to OX, some of them fail due to duplicate members of those groups. E.g. I have a group "exmitarb" which holds 33 members, but the resulting creategroup command contains an "-a" list that holds 39 IDs, of which 6 are duplicates.

    The perl code that grabs the groupshash from LDAP seems to be ok. However, I must say, that I am not perl guru. So far, I ended up with this small patch, which works for me, but maybe, someone else knows a better solution.

    Just a short reminder to the developers...
    The problem still exists as of today (current Debian Lenny release). However, the patch I supplied in May seems to not fix it completely. Some groups still do net get created. But when the already exist, their lists of member get fixed upon the next run.
