(ITS#5713) Documentation: olcDbMode incorrect at http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/slapdconf2.html

Submission from: (NULL) (18.104.22.168)
The documentation present at http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/slapdconf2.html
provides an incorrect example for the olcDbMode attribute. The documentation
22.214.171.124. olcDbMode: <integer>
This directive specifies the file protection mode that newly created database
index files should have.
However, olcDbMode takes an integer, and slapd will reject a value of 0600. It
will accept a value of 600, however, this results in octal permissions 1130,
which is -not- what you want. Instead, providing olcDbMode with a value of 384
will result in an octal permission of 0600, which is, I believe, what the
documentation is attempting to state.
