As reported in http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=673038, putting
slapcat into a loop shows that it periodically fails to correctly dump an active
database in full.

We have also seen this at customer sites, when nightly backups are run.

At the least, slapcat should return an error, so that failure can be caught and
a new slapcat run.
