slapd crashes when back-ldap receives attrs with unknown schema (ITS#999)

Submission from: (NULL) (

I aimed a back-ldap to an OpenLDAP-1.2 server with schemacheck off and fancy
and slapd crashes if ACLs require it to check the fancy attrs. I posted a patch
that fixes the problem in a rather crude way (unknown attrs are ignored by acls
and not returned) because I need to use the back-ldap in production environment
to allow access thru a firewall to a remote server I cannot control.
Is the problem known? What should be the best way to handle such behavior?
