Re: ITS78 not fixed - modrdn loses records (ITS#132)--->Done ...well, almost!

A fix has been posted to the devel distribution for the problem you and others
reported. The problems was that index files were not being updated correctly
after modrdn operations. I believe there is still a problem: if you use modrdn
with deleteoldrdn=1, the old attribute value (rdn) will be deleted but a search
with the oldrdn will still return the entry. I would very likely fix this in the
future after I get approval from others in core.

Please test and send your feedback!
