Took me 2 hours to figure out I missed to add this ACL:

access to attrs=userPassword
       by self write
       by * auth
*rolls eyes*

Cheers though,

either you may have to set the password with ldappasswd or such so 
that you have it crypted, or maybe you have to pass -x?

aside from that, what are the credentials for the root dn of the 
server?  ldapsearch has to start somewhere I guess.  What about 
ldapsearch -b cn=somezone,ou=zones,dc=webgate,dc=net,dc=au ?

switching on debugging in the ldap server helps a lot.
