The order should be strictly the order the entries were 
added. If they were added over-the-wire, this should
correspond to children after parents. Perhaps you're
running on a little-endian architecture, and the OpenLDAP
code isn't converting the entry ID to the big-endian
form for storage in the database ? If this is the case,
then the ordering from ldbmcat will indeed appear strange.
