This indicates that the entry being debugged is actually zero bytes, i.e. it's 
not a valid entry at all. Nodes like this get stored in the database during 
slapadd when a child entry gets added before its parent; a zero-byte stub is 
stored as a placeholder for the missing parent. When you ran slapadd you 
should have seen warning messages about missing entries, telling you that your 
LDIF is incomplete.

We can prevent the SEGV but your database is still invalid because your LDIF 
is invalid.
