Tip #2 already dealt with one of the problems while using multi-value properties.But there is another pitfall that got me once - and usually only happens in production environments and is very hard to debug. I am talking about property range fetch a mechanism introduced to allow the active directory server to use certain optimizations. Unfortunatelly the optimization means a harder to understand API and more work for us programmer.
