FS#98 @ on ldap silences necessary feedback
ACL & Authentication
If one attempts to run DokuWiki with ldap authentication and there is something wrong with the ldap php configuration (such as the module is not installed or the connection is failing for some reason) a blank page is the result. Part of the problem is that every ldap call is prefixed with "@". Understandably, one might want to prevent errors from going to the end user, but the logic prevents the user from getting any info at all.
I was attempting to run DokuWiki had to remove the "@" to find out that it was failing because the ldap module was not installed. Better error handling should be implemented here.
I added a debug option to optionally print more errors.
