There is no backend matching cn=accesslog.  There is only "" and 
"cn=monitor" on this particular server.  The goal here was not to export a 
subtree, it was something trying to export the delta-syncrepl accesslog on 
a server that didn't have one.  That should result in an error, not match 
the primary db rooted at "".  I certainly wouldn't expect -n 3 to default 
to -n 1 if -n 3 doesn't exist.  Neither should -b "cn=accesslog" default to 
-b "".  Those clearly do not match.
