sortvals oddity

  I've run into the following issue while trying to track down why we
are occasionally seeing duplicate members/memberUids in our groups:

  Set the server up for "sortvals memberUid". Add a posixGroup without any
memberUid attributes present. Adding new memberUid attributes to the
group afterwards will result in them being unsorted until server
restart. I'm shooting from the hip here - shouldn't attr_merge() (in
attr.c) have something like the following?

        if ( *a == NULL ) {
                *a = attr_alloc( desc );
                if (desc->ad_type->sat_flags & SLAP_AT_SORTED_VAL) {
                  (*a)->a_flags |= SLAP_ATTR_SORTED_VALS;
        } else {
