[thelist] ColdFusion, LDAP, and binary data

Trying to use ToBinary() didn't work either.  The error returned was:
Parameter 1 of function toBinary which is now "÷òl.ð°ÊJ•‹Û?dïN" must be a
base64-encoded string

I even tried to use cfwddx to deserialize the data--obviously no luck as
this string isn't even close to being xml!

Thanks for the help so far...any other ideas??
