I haven't used 8.2 with any recent OpenLDAP Version. Only with some 2.1.X 
(IIRC up to 2.1.17) versions that were uptodate when 8.2 was released. I 
didn't see such issues back then. test008 performed quite normal with those 
versions. But that doesn't tell too much about current OpenLDAP releases.
