Well, considering that no one has reported any such problem during the 
whole time releases 2.3.6-2.3.27 were published, it's no surprise that 
there has been no fix yet.

There's not enough information here to reproduce the bug. What backend 
are you using, what other entries are in the database? In particular, 
does "uid=test,ou=Users,dc=example,dc=com" exist? You should provide a 
sample slapd.conf and minimal LDIF needed to reproduce the error.
