(ITS#4515) config backend: unable to change olcLimits

When I try to change the size and time limits using ldapmodify with

dn: olcDatabase={4}bdb,cn=config
changetype: modify
add: olcLimits
olcLimits: dn.exact="..." size=unlimited time=unlimited

I get the following error:

ldap_modify: Inappropriate matching (18)
        additional info: modify/add: olcLimits: no equality matching rule

Would it suffice to add "EQUALITY caseIgnoreMatch" for the olcLimits
attributetype? Or does such an operation have further consequences. Since we are
tracking the stable version I would like to see a solution in that version, if
possible. Of course in the mean time I can change te configuration manually and
restart the server so there is no ruch to this issue.

Kind regards,
