Duh, that's a feature, not a bug.  If a referral entry gets renamed,
that does not magically rename the entry it refers to.  It gets to be a
bug if one has cooperating servers where they all rename the entry.

Anyway, getting back to back-bdb - once the database has a ref attribute
with a DN, I don't see how rewriting it is worse than not rewriting.  So
I think the fix for now is to to follow the RFCs.
