(ITS#4011) slapcat -s gives wrong error message

When slapd has had an unclean shutdown, slapcat -s shows:
sundial1:/tmp# slapcat -s cn=people,dc=stanford=dc=edu -l people.ldif
slapcat: slap_init no backend for "cn=people,dc=stanford=dc=edu"

and then quits.  This is really not accurate.  The real issue here is that the
DB has to be recovered (via alock).  Running slapcat a second time results the
LDIF file being correctly created.
