An object in a Netscape Directory Server can only be deleted if it is a terminal node.

Eventually, recursion stops when a terminal node is reached and this node is deleted. As the process traces back up the stack through all of the recursions, each node is deleted until the starting node, sADsPathParent, is reached.
