I would say since dbconfig directives only work on a restart of slapd, and
that if a DB_CONFIG is present, the DB_CONFIG should *always* take
precedence. If dbconfig changes could make a difference via back-config,
which they can't without a restart, then dbconfig stuff should override

I hope that makes sense?
