NOTES We use refreshOnly mode as refreshAndPersist mode uses LDAP Intermediate Response Messages [RFC4511] that are not supported by current Net::LDAP.

However (quoting from RFC, page 21):

   The server SHOULD transfer a new cookie frequently to avoid having to
   transfer information already provided to the client.  Even where DIT
   changes do not cause content synchronization changes to be
   transferred, it may be advantageous to provide a new cookie using a
   Sync Info Message.  However, the server SHOULD avoid overloading the
   client or network with Sync Info Messages.
