Nothing shows up in contacts list if connected to an LDAP address book

Description of problem:
If one connects to an LDAP address book
one can certainly go ahead and search for contacts while trying to address an
email, but nothing shows up in the Contacts section of Evo, under the LDAP
address book. Searching doesn't work there, and it appears empty. This is very
counterintuitive behavior. Not yet sure if this is a regression or not.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add LDAP address book
2. Try to do a search or see any contacts
No contacts show up, unless you are trying to address an email.
Contacts should show up, at least up until the download limit set (default 100

Unfortunately you need to do a search of some kind for anything to turn up.
This is a long-standing problem with Evolution's LDAP support; would be nice to
get this fixed (maybe some kind of cursoring mechanism?), but I think it's going
to be hard.
This should probably be filed upstream and handled there...
Moving this upstream where we will continue to track the problem.
