Then it should have a corresponding normalized value "s287384" (note the 
lowercase "s") in the a_nvals array of bervals of the Attribute 
strycture where it's stored.  If it doesn't (e.g. because the attribute 
was created incorrectly by your custom backend) then the behavior you 
see makes perfectly sense, and is not indicative of a software bug in 
OpenLDAP software.
