Is the memberOf attribute handling by the memberOf plugin limited to objects inside the same subsuffix?

If it's not planned as such* please doublecheck this behaviour within the following scenario:

- suffix dc=directory,dc=org

- subsuffix ou=users,dc=directory,dc=org

- subsuffix ou=testing,ou=users,dc=directory,dc=org

We have then three databases. They're not replicated. The membefOf plugin works only with elements (users and groups) that belong to the same subsuffix.* But not between different subsuffixes. As such, if you make a user of ou=testing... member of a group of ou=users then the plugin will not populate the memberOf attribute for that user.

The same here:

- subsuffix ou=users,dc=example,dc=com

- subsuffix ou=grupos,dc=example,dc=com

Here the plugin wont work either.* If you make a user inside ou=users member of a group inside ou=groups then the value of memberOf wont be populated.

If you set debug to heavy trace, you'll see that the plugin runs in every situation but:

1.- when the objects belong to the same subsuffix, adding one membership triggers the memberOf plugin to "ldap replace" values, which is correct.

2.- when the objects belong to different subsuffix, adding one membership triggers the memberOf plugin to "ldap REMOVE" values, which amazes me.

Can you post your memberOf plugin configuration?
