The behavior I described has been part of every OpenLDAP 2.x release and
likely every 1.x release as well. If a request doesn't get past input
validation then it will not be logged by Statslog. I think the only
reason you're seeing it now is because you've just brought a new client
online that is submitting invalid modify requests that you never got before.
