(ITS#6542) Segmentation Fault if config file (ldif) got changed

Using the new configuration scheme, I changed
/etc/openldap/slapd.d/cn=config/olcDatabase={1}hdb.ldif of a running openldap
instance. When I tried to restart openldap it gaves me a Segmentation Fault
error. Even if I called the changes off, openldap refused to start (furthermore
segfaulted). I needed to get a copy of the original configuration file from my
backup to successfully start openldap again.
I think it's somewhere ok to deny working with a hand-changed configuration, but
I think we will need a friendly advise, no unfriendly Segementation Fault error.
