(ITS#4989) Quirk in Dynlist overlay configuration

I found a behaviour issue with the dynlist overlay configuration:

I tried the following configuration:

overlay dynlist
dynlist-attrset posixGroup memberURL
dynlist-attrset groupOfURLs memberURL owner

but slaptest complains about it - and the slapd doesn't start with it:

@(#) $OpenLDAP: slapd 2.3.34[...]
/usr/local/etc/openldap/slapd.conf: line 91: "dynlist-attrset <oc>
<URL-ad> [<member-ad>]": URL attributeDescription "memberURL" already
slapd stopped.

When I use multiple "overlay dynlist"-entries like:

overlay dynlist
dynlist-attrset posixGroup memberURL
overlay dynlist
dynlist-attrset groupOfURLs memberURL owner

it works as expected, but there is a warning:

overlay_config(): warning, overlay "dynlist" already in list

PS: Although the new Version 2.3.35 isn't available via FreeBSD Ports
yet, I don't think that it would change anything, because the source
file of the dynlist-overlay doesn't seem to have changed in any part
that matters to this issue.
