Okay, you're forgiven.  :-) :-)

If an anonymous bind isn't working, you can configure PmWiki to use a
non-anonymous bind.  The configuration will go something like:

    $AuthUser['ldap'] = 'ldap://yourserver.com/cn=Users,dc=judicialtitle,dc=com?uid?sub';
    $AuthLDAPBindDN = 'bindingdn';
    $AuthLDAPBindPassword = 'password';


You'll need to replace:

    'yourserver.com'   with your active directory server
    'uid'              with the correct LDAP attribute used for usernames
    'bindingdn'        with an LDAP dn that allows binding to the server
    'password'         with the password for 'bindingdn'

Also, if you could let me know what LDAP attribute is typically used by 
Active Directory for usernames, that'd be a huge help.  (I don't have access
to an Active Directory server.)

Please let me know if this works, or if you have any other questions.
I can then update the documentation accordingly.
