I found a strange behavior in the unique overlay.

unique overlay only works, when a rootdn is specified in the slapd.conf, because
the unique_search function uses the rootdn for searching. (took me hours to
determine why my configuration didn't do it's job)

Isn't it more reasonable to use the dn with which the add or modify is
performed? Or mention this circumstance at least in the manpage?!
