What I tried to achieve was to let the chain overlay chase the "updateref" 
referral that is returned by the syncrepl consumer when it receives write 
operations (a modify in my case). And this somehow does not work with the 
current code.
As I already wrote I think it's because when send_ldap_result() with the 
"updateref" referral is called from fe_op_modify() no response callback is 
registerd in op->callback. I just veryfied again by adding some printf 
debugging to the code.
