I've received reports of issues with referrals returned from a third-party DSA
to OpenLDAP's proxy backends.  Apparently, in some cases the response contained
referrals with a return code different from LDAP_REFERRAL.  Although I can't
prove it (it seems to be non-deterministic), I've strenghtened the proxy
backends code so that it rejects those responses instead of sending them thru
send_ldap_result(), which triggers an assertion.
