I use 2.1.8 on (intel) Linux and OSX.  (Also observed under 2.1.6)

Heh, "red line" doesn't work so well through email, but I think I

I encountered this same problem when software tried to add additional
values to an existing multivalued attribute.

This was done using Net::LDAP rather than Java...  I really doubt the
API used makes any difference.

I was able to get core dumps from when slapd segfaults, but all they
revealed was that slapd choked on an already corrupted database.  (The
DN's it was pulling up were garbage)

I'd have said something sooner, but I seemed to be the only one having
this problem...  sorry about that.

As I'm using 2.1.8, this was all done using v3 binds.  Has anyone
tested this on v2 binds or openldap-2.0.x?
