The assertion leads me to believe that one of the values received from the 
remote server violated the attribute syntax, and so the value failed in the 
normalizer on the local slapd. What is the remote server?

It's a bit strange that changing the configuration, but leaving the remote 
server unchanged, avoids the problem.
