The real bug here is that the loop for attribute normalizations is run
also in case there is no attrs.  In fact, the same error shows up if you
craft a shell backend (back-shell, back-perl) so that an LDIF only
containing a DN is returned.

It is now fixed in HEAD; please test.  Please, also check and test for
any side-effect introduced by the fix, as it impacts all calls to
str2entry (many, I believe).
