Actually, it returns leaving the in memory representation hosed (which
has been a long standing bug) and (lately) corrupts (replace value)

I've committed a fix which at least passed my initial tests
(ie: cd tests; make ldbm).   It saves a copy of the attributes
and restores them if need be.  It also allows the "replace"
index changes to made after schema checking.
