Yes, thanks. The consumer assumed that an entry being renamed would have no 
other modifications associated with it. This assumption is wrong. There are no 
rename ops in test018, but apparently back-ldif is not returning the RDN with 
the same case as the original entry, so syncrepl assumes a rename (that only 
changed letter case) was done.

Still looking at the fix.
