(ITS#6414) back-ldif can write to parent dir of database dir

back-ldif can be convinced to write/delete a file in the parent
directory of the database directory: "<database dirname>.ldif".
That shouldn't happen, even if the only use case I know is silly:
slapadd entry "" to an LDIF database with suffix "".  Fixing.

(The fix is not to prevent this in slapadd, which explicitly
accepts this case - I think for some syncrepl magic from bdb.)
