One correction:

In lib/RTx/EmailCompletion/Ldap.pm, line 20 currently reads


And should be


I'm also not seeing the grey backgrounds, but haven't had time to look
at whether that's a problem with the plugin, or somehow something in our
local setup.  I'll hopefully have time to work with it some more

Ok got it. I've change it a bit and applied it.

The best idea I can think of (is it english ?) is to verify that
LdapServer and EmailCompletionLdapServer are the same and if not,
don't fallback to LdapUser/LdapPass. I will do that way for the
moment. If you have a better idea, let me know.

I will keep the fallback for EmailCompletionBase and
EmailCompletionFilter because it seems good for those two.

Quite easy, LDAP emails now have light grey background. If you have a
better idea or a better color, let me know.

By the way, thanks for the patch and for your help.
