Default libldap-ruby has memory corruption errors

Package: libldap-ruby
Severity: important

libruby-ldap creates LDAP::Mod objects by copying pointers, not strings, which
means that when the original string is garbage collected, the Mod objects are
corrupted.

Attached is a patch that is also being submitted upstream, but as similar bugs
have been reported years ago with no response, not holding out a lot of hope on
timely response.
