You're right. Following the debug traces, it's merge_entry which is passing 
the entry it got from the proxy directly to be_add(). But bdb_add() takes the 
given entry and inserts it directly into its entry cache, instead of calling 
entry_dup(). Since this particular entry came from back-ldap's stack, this 
whole chain of events is doomed to fail.

I'll fix this by calling entry_dup() in pcache merge_entry().
