Ah this is a simple timing issue in the test startup; the incoming entry was 
ignored because its entryCSN was older than the local one.

I guess we can try to patch the startup sequencing of the script; this problem 
can only occur in cn=config, because of the special nature of the cn=schema 
and olcDatabase={0}config entries.
