(ITS#3865) Passing a directory to slapd with "-f" is equivalent to reading an empty file

When erroneously passing a(n existing) directory as arg to the "-f" switch of
slapd, it silently opens it and gives up with no error, much like it werre
passed an empty file.  This may not be the intended behavior; I suggest an error
is returned.
