I have tried with only one rule. In this case, the rule 
is exactly like the following:

access to dn="ou=suborg-1,o=org,c=ES"
   by dn="cn=admin,ou=suborg-n,o=org,c=ES" write

With that only rule, the time it takes to get a full 
listing of the entries under ou=suborg-1 is quite more 
than the time it takes to return the list without the

I have also tried with other sintax but I got the same

I think the rule I set up is the simplest (isn't it?)

Perhaps is a matter of not listing all the entries: an 
increment of the required time could be more 
'affordable' in cases of searches, but it's only a 
question of reducing the base time and the problem would 
appear again with a hard use of the service.

I read about using gnu regex library in the list 
archive, but haven't still installed it (I thought I 
wasn't using regular expressions, so I seemed of little 
influence to me).

Thanks for your answer and thanks in advance for any 
other indication/correction.
