Patches: back-shell abandon is inconsistent (ITS#1792)

Full_Name: Hallvard B. Furuseth
Version: HEAD (2002-05-02)
OS: Linux
Submission from: (NULL) (

I made a doc bug which I'm not sure how to deal with, so I'm ITS'ing
it separately:

The input to all back-shell commands except abandon start with
	msgid: <message id>
but the input to abandon starts with
	msgid: <message id of operation to abandon>
and the message id of the abandon operation itself is not present.

There are two possible fixes:  Either document the inconsistency:
or change the calling conventions to shell abandon to
	msgid: <message id>
	abandonid: <message id of operation to abandon>
and send an alert to openldap-announce or openldap-software:

See also ITS#1784 (back-tcl abandon needs abandoned msgid as argument).
