1) Set up meta backend to use 2 different targets:
suffix dc=my-domain,dc=com
uri ldap://host1/ou=target1,dc=my-domain,dc=com

uri ldap://host2/ou=target2,dc=my-domain,dc=com
suffixmassage "ou=target2,dc=my-domain,dc=com" "ou=a,dc=foo,dc=bar,dc=com"

2) Under ou=target2,dc=my-domain,dc=com create entry

3) Under ou=target1,dc=my-domain,dc=com create alias
alisedObjectName = cn=Person1,ou=target2,dc=my-domain,dc=com

4) Try to search/read cn=Person1Alias,ou=target1,dc=my-domain,dc=com with
aliases dereferencing turned on

Expected result: alias entry is transparently dereferenced into
cn=Person1,ou=target2,dc=my-domain,dc=com data

Actual result: search returns no results
