The example config is invalid.

include         schema/core.schema
include         schema/cosine.schema
include         schema/inetorgperson.schema
modulepath  ../servers/slapd/overlays
moduleload  pcache.la

database        ldap
uri     ldap://example.com
suffix          dc=example,dc=com
rootdn          dc=example,dc=com
rootpw          xxx

overlay pcache
directory /tmp/testr/db.1.a
pcache mdb 50000 2 500 3600
pcacheAttrset 0 mail uid
pcacheAttrset 1 cn telephoneNumber
pcachePersist TRUE
pcacheTemplate (mail=)  0 10800 7200
pcacheTemplate (uid=) 1 10800 7200
index objectclass pres
index mail,uid,telephoneNumber pres,eq

database monitor

"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.
