Both the admin guide and man slapd.conf(5) could use improved
"unchecked"/"pr" sizelimit documentation.  That is, they could
mention a few more places that a statement like "sizelimit unlimited"
does not set the unchecked limit, so if you override limits set
elsewhere, you need to explicitly override your unchecked setting.

Admin guide: 9.3. Global Limits.  9.4.3. Specifying size limits
which does not mention that the default sets soft,hard.

Also the 9.4.3 syntax is wrong - doesn't mention .pr - as the
very next paragraph says.  Same thing applies to the manpage.

Man page: 'sizelimit': does not mention that default is soft,hard.
'limits': says this at the very end - could move it up.  And
split into several paragraphs.
