Just, an instance of rwm is created for each "relay", and this causes
undesired side effects.  Note that there is a check about having
multiple instances of the same overlays stacked over the same database,
but apparently code changed and the check does not catch this.  I'd be
tempted into putting this in the ITS#4211, as I think when back-relay
and slapo-rwm configuration will be rewritten many of these issues will
