Yes. I can search with either the OLD or the NEW and it yeilds the same
entry. The dn for that entry is reported as being the OLD dn. It's really
bizzare! It only happens with the replicated server, not the master.

How do I perform a backtrace? Is it possible to get the backtrace after
the server has crashed? There doesn't seem to be a core dump.
The problem is repeatable. Issuing a modrdn request, whether or not I
specify a newsuperior, will always cause the replicated server to crash in
an unstable state.
