Per http://www.openldap.org/lists/openldap-devel/200812/msg00004.html these
patches enhance tests to detect ITS#5809-like behavior.

The actual test changes are at the address linked to this report. They should
apply clean to HEAD and can be used immediately with, for example, back-ldif. I
note that I wasn't able to reproduce a failure under test018; if anybody can
suggest a different test there, that'd be great, or perhaps the stopping and
starting somehow masks the condition?

While verifying the tests, I noticed that some backends (such as back-bdb) were
failing because the consumer and provider returned the attributes in a different
order. Since attribute ordering isn't guaranteed, I viewed this as a test
failure rather than a slapd failure, and used the back-ndb gawk acfilter.sh to
work around this. In the end I just made it apply to all backends:


but we'll probably want to discuss this on -devel: it adds a gawk dependency to
the tests.

With the acfilter.sh sorting enabled, I found three tests that don't filter the
original data prior to ldapsearch comparison. I added these filters in:


We all know that nothing's free -- a couple extra commands in the name of bug
coverage is probably worth it -- but the gawk dependency may be troublesome.
Anyway, do what you will...I consider these pretty trivial, so:
