Thanks. I'm not very familiar with SLAPI either (and can't find a canonical 
set of docs for the OpenLDAP implementation of it), but your comments 
provided enough information to work around the problem. I now call 
slapi_entry_dup() to get a copy of the entry, and then modify the copy.

Feel free to close this issue, although there is a more general issue of SLAPI 
documentation here.
