Log Message:
make pseudoroot-bind-defer TRUE by default (part of ITS#5440 fix)

This is a change in a side-feature of back-meta, something that should not hurt in most cases, but definitely a change in the default behavior, established since back-meta was released. What's the best way to notify it?

I'm being dumb, but notify what?

Probably I was not clear enough. I changed the default behavior of a parameter, so now if it's not specified in slapd.conf (no back-config yet :) users may get unexpected changes in the behavior of back-meta. The change should not be critical, since the original behavior was sort of dumb, but one aspect is that it was related to authentication, and the change could result in a deferred discovery that what the administrative credentials used by the backend are no longer valid, i.e. a bind as the pseudorootdn would succeed but a subsequent operation could fail. Also, the response textual message and the logging might not clearly indicate the cause of the error, I need to check it.
