For better backward compatibility, olcPasswordHash is allowed in both the 
olcGlobal entry and the frontendDB entry. The preferred location for this 
setting is now in the frontendDB entry. When generating a slapd.d from a 
slapd.conf file, only the frontendDB entry will carry the attribute. Existing 
slapd.d configs with the attribute in the global entry should continue to work 
but they should be manually updated to use only the frontendDB entry.

This fix is now in RE23 as well as RE24.
