Yes, ignore that for now.  It's not the main problem.

No, it should be something like "o=PGP Keys", or at least including
the "PGP Keys" as part of the string.  It's pretty clear what is going
wrong, but it is not clear whether this is a problem with your LDAP
server setup or in gpgkeys_ldap.

I think you said this was set up by your IT dept for PGP users as
well.  Does it work with PGP?
