The problem with using hprop in the ldap setting is that hprop assumes
it can throw way the complete database on the recvive end. That
is not true for LDAP, as an initial load its fine, but doing propagating
is better done using the internal propagation builtin to your ldap

I think this is a bug too, but its not possible to fix right now (of  
and its better to just tell the user its not possible to do this.
