Well, this is exactly the bug - that it disregards the endianness of it.

Hi Kaul,

that is simply network byte order vs. host byte order. on the network all numbers are transfered big endian style so the most significant byte is always the last byte. If you look closer you will notice it's just turned around.

Running 0.99.7, on Windows, capturing Active Directory LDAP communication, there's some wrong display of GUIDs (object type objectGUID). For example, what on the wire looks like (hex) 25 ff 7e 7d 1a f2 a2 49... should be 7d7eff25-f21a-49a2-... (I think the rest is like the wire). However, I see that on the search request, even though on the wire it is the same, it is printed as 25:ff:7e:7d;1a:f2:....
Am I correct to assume it is because the assertionValue print naively prints the data, with disregard to its actual content?
In the reply, as the item is indeed dissected as a GUID, it is displayed properly.
