Re: bug searching for 'attr==+=' (ITS#267)

Aw c'mon, man!  You thinky I no speaky /bin/sh?  Just to humour you, I
added the quotes, but that didn't change a thing.  Of course not: no
searches would have worked if the script was buggy.  Have you run the
script yourself?

Hallvard B Furuseth <openldap-its@OpenLDAP.org> suggested deleting the
"case '+':" line from servers/slapd/filterentry.c.  I tried it and the
bug went away.  However, deleting lines from unfamiliar code makes me
nervous.  Is that the right place to fix this bug?  Here's the diff:

    Index: servers/slapd/filterentry.c
    RCS file: /repo/OpenLDAP/pkg/ldap/servers/slapd/filterentry.c,v
    retrieving revision
    diff -r1. filterentry.c
    < 		case '+':
    >           /* case '+': */
