There was a change in functionality in OpenLDAP 2.2.19 where "ldaps:///" with a
sasl-regexp no longer works.  Other than taking out my test environment for a
few hours, I think that slapd should throw a complaint if it encounters that
invalid syntax in a configuration file, instead of appearing to run normally.  
The slapd.conf man page may want to note that LDAP URI's with "ldaps:///" are
not valid in the sasl-regexp section as well.  Since plenty of places on google
refer to LDAP URI's using ldaps (there's even CPAN perl module for it), people
are likely not to understand it isn't a valid syntax.
