While using the "cn=config" configuration, I found that "cn=config" is also the
default olcRootDN.  By just configuring a olcRootPW , login to the config
database is possible using "cn=config" and the configured olcRootPW.  This
default should be documented in the admin guide, etc.

IRC user hyc on #openldap mentioned "it's been the default since 2005", but "I
can't find the reference either, perhaps we lost it."
