Hmm, I've done some more tests. Invalid syntax (21) also does not make it
beyond the frontend into accesslog-DB.

I have no clear opinion on this. Of course the current behaviour is good for
performance. But sometimes one would like to observe what broken LDAP clients
sent in a modify request in the past.

Also running with BER loglevel or breaking up the TLS connection with stunnel
and sniff with Wireshark is not always an option.

Having this configurable would be great.

What's your opinion on this?

Ciao, Michael.
