Re: err=20 when rdn attr name is different that attr name in object (ITS#1997)

The "two version" simply differ by case. This should be handled properly 
by slapd.

There is no schema awareness in this client; all it knows are strings. I 
assure you it is not changing any strings into other strings, and the case 
difference is what is being detected as a "different attribute". This does 
not sound to me like a client bug. Do you want a netcat filter, a higher 
level openldap log? I can assure you I do not have multiple instances of 
the same attribute that vary by anything but case.
