The example config is invalid.
pcache mdb 50000 2 500 3600
pcacheAttrset 0 mail uid
pcacheAttrset 1 cn telephoneNumber
pcacheTemplate (mail=) 0 10800 7200
pcacheTemplate (uid=) 1 10800 7200
index objectclass pres
index mail,uid,telephoneNumber pres,eq
"directory" is not a valid config keyword for the pcache overlay. It is a
valid keyword for back-mdb, but here it was given before the "pcache mdb..."
line so slapd doesn't yet know that back-mdb will be used. The slapo-pcache(5)
manpage clearly states what directives are valid.
Personally I'd be fine with leaving this to SEGV as it does. Catching user
errors doesn't help much in the long run; either way slapd will fail to start
so there's no difference either way.
But in this case, the SEGV is now prevented in git master.
