As a followup, I cant tell you that the consequences of this error is that slapd
becomes non responsive, in the sense that now entries are return on ldapsearches
which would normally return entries.

Theory (however thin): The attributes used to make up the DN are taken from
the actual entry, so that 2 entries looking like this

dn: uid=blabla,ou=people,dc=cybercity,dc=dk
uid: blabla

dn: uid=blabla2,ou=people,dc=cybercity,dc=dk
uid: blabla

Could generate the problem...
