Misleading information in slapd.conf:

an option _logfile_ is described in slapd.conf: "Specify  a  file  for 
recording  debug log messages. [...]" unfortunately it is not clear, what are
"debug log messages". Obviously it is not " debugging statements and operation
statistics" which can be controlled by the loglevel option. 

To be honest, I have no clue what the option is for. The only result I got in
using this, what a new, empty log file.

My, and (by google a few other, too) expected that the logfile option specify
the file for the debugging statements.
