I figured out how to fix the issue you reported.  It is related to the
fact that slapd internally assumes that ldctl_oid values are constant
strings, so it doesn't duplicate nor free them.  However, control OIDs
returned by back-ldap (and friends) have been decoded from the wire by the
client library, so they are actually malloc'ed.  That's why backglue ends
up with a dangling pointer.

I'm fixing it by having backglue duplicate (and free) control OIDs
consistently.  Another option would be to replace those values with
constant strings for known control values.  This would prevent gluing for
unknown proxied controls.
