What are the values returned by the LDAP_SEARCH Return_Status field?  These values come from the LDAP directory. There is a need for customization for the login screen to show why the users failed to authenticate via LDAP.

Also, the LDAP_SEARCH returns the values from the Directory, however the LDAP_BIND uses only 0 or -1 for success/failure.  The LDAP_BIND should also show the value for the value returned by the directory and passed to the PeopleCode so that this Return_Status can be interpreted and used.
