Bug In Slapd Error Handling (ITS#313)

Full_Name: Lars Uffmann
Version: 1.2.6
OS: linux 2.2.10
URL: ftp://ftp.openldap.org/incoming/
Submission from: (NULL) (

In some situations it is possible that slapd will send LDAP_SUCCESS in response
to search requests even though an internal (ldbm) backend error occured.
The client will recive an empty search result with code LDAP_SUCCESS and has to
assume the entry(ies) in question doesn't exist.

ldbm backend build with version 2.7.5 (04/18/99) of Sleepycat Software's
Berkeley DB.

I am not able to reproduce this problem. My specific problem occured after
weeks of continous service.
