This thread is getting a bit old, but I thought I should mention that I both have seen this problem, and have a resolution from Apple.

Apparently, the "Search Base" is not actually invalid. The OpenDirectory client is looking for "computer-list" objects in "CN=Mac OS X", within the scope of the bound Active Directory domain. If you create a "Mac OS X" container in your domain and populate your apple-computer-list objects there, OenDirectory should be able to locate the objects.

Also, you should be aware of the following article:
The problem documented here is that if you have configured the AD plugin to allow authentication from "all domains in the forest", the search from computer-list objects will fail. You need to run "dsconfigad -alldomains disable", then modify the Directory Utility Search policy to search specific domains instead of all domains. Apple has stated that they have no intention to fix this bug.
