It seems that the order in which the entries are inserted into the cache is 
non-deterministic. Because of that the order in which they are returned from 
cache varies as well. The final test that compares the ldapsearch results 
with proxycache.out relies on the order.

I get a lot of DB_LOCK_DEADLOCK in slapd.2.log and if I don't missread the log 
it seems that sometimes the entries from Query 9 get inserted into the cache 
before the entry from Query 5 ("cn=Bjorn Jensen,ou=Information Technology 
Division, ...") and sometimes after. Depending on that the test either fails 
or succeeds.
