uniqueID not unique and top,AuthLDAPAuthoritative Directive

Hi all.

We have a problem in our tree that our user CN and uniqueID are not
truly unique and that is why iPrint authentication fails for some users
(from iPrint authentication window, it succeeds from novell client for
some reason).

I'm not apache-guru so I have to ask what happens if make two

<Location /ipps>

in ipp.conf with more specific AuthLDAPURL -searches and put
AuthLDAPDNAuthoritative Off in first and On in second?

Unfortunately I don't have test-server just now to test this. Could that
result in success if there is valid-user in first search and non-valid
in second (and vice versa), or will if fail? Is it security risk?

Or is it error by itself to have two <Location> entries for one directory?
