Not a bug.  The 'attributetype' format is contained inside the
slapd.conf format.  The slapd.conf format is that each directive is
written in one conceptual line: one line plus any additional slapd.conf
continuation lines - i.e. lines which start with whitespace.

Though if the documentation is unclear on this point, feel free to
suggest how to improve it.
