pls help: "Operations error" from ldapdelete (ITS#29)

We upgraded our LDAP server to 1.1.1 recently, which runs on Solaris 2.6.
I got this error when deleting an entry:

# ldapdelete -v -D 'cn=root,dc=cuhk,dc=edu,dc=hk' -w xxx
deleting entry uid=130002,dc=cuhk,dc=edu,dc=hk
ldap_delete: Operations error

I did the same command on 1.03 with the same database without problem.  
If the base dn (dc=cuhk,dc=edu,dc=hk) is omitted :

# ldapdelete -v -D 'cn=root,dc=cuhk,dc=edu,dc=hk' -w xxx 'uid=130002'
deleting entry uid=0000016a-4f5c-21d1-a000-08000945cdd0
entry removed

However ldapsearch still returns this entry.

Would anyone please help ?  

Thanks a lot.
