I disagree; it is not cn=config that defaults database monitoring to TRUE;
actually, it's back-bdb/back-hdb that sets its own monitoring to TRUE as
soon as back-monitor support is compiled and the specific backend
monitoring is successfully initilized.

Maybe this warning can be demoted to LDAP_DEBUG_CONFIG instead of
LDAP_DEBUG_ANY.  I understand that one could presume that the lack of
database monitor in the configuration indicates that monitoring is not
desired; this warning, however, tries to address a typical configuration
error, when admins just forget to configure it.
