Attached patch The fixSplinter Review
The fix - change Auth DN (aka Bind DN) setting to be an AUTF8String. Includes xpcshell test to ensure correct setting/retrieval of pref.

We haven't got facilities to test talking to LDAP servers at the moment, but I have tested on my local server with a non-ascii Bind DN and it all works correctly (the LDAP back end was been designed with this in mind apparently: http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsblame.cgi?file=/mozilla/directory/xpcom/base/public/nsILDAPConnection.idl&rev=1.22&mark=63#50).
