    ****************************************************************
    Virtual member manager (VMM) does not handle overlapping
    seachbases either sent in clientDO or configured in
    wimconfig.xml
    The search() with overlapping searchbases is not treated
    properly and returns an entry redundently. This results in
    login() failure with DuplicateLogonIdException.
    <wim:controls xsi:type="wim:SearchControl" countLimit="4501"
    expression="@xsi:type='PersonAccount' and (uid = '*admin*')"
    timeLimit="600000">
