Re: (ITS#3819) Strange slapd.conf diagnostic after authz-regexp

At the time it occurs, the current backend is the frontendDB. This error 
message is used whenever the current backend is non-NULL. I suppose we 
can add a check for the current backend == frontendDB, but then that 
will confuse things if someone has used an explicit "database frontend" 

This probably should be straightened out, but at the moment it seems 
harmless and we have other things to worry about.
