Splunk Support for Active Directory: Why can I not search from the root of the domain after upgrade to Splunk 6.2?

We are utilizing the Splunk Supporting Add-on for Active Directory version 2.0 and we are no longer able to search from the root of our domain. If I run the exact same search and point it to an OU below the root it will work without any issues. If I run the test connection on the configuration screen, which searches at the root, it works just fine.

This search works.
| ldapsearch basedn="OU=MyOU,DC=my,DC=domain" search="(objectClass=user)" attrs="sAMAccountName,displayName,Title,distinguishedName"

This one does not work.
| ldapsearch basedn="DC=my,DC=domain" search="(objectClass=user)" attrs="sAMAccountName,displayName,Title,distinguishedName"
