ACL's again...

Eww, following up on own posting!

I figured out the problem ... appears that + is a special character in 
the regex and makes slapd do weird things internally.  Perhaps it's a
bug?  I can't say since I haven't managed to find any proper
documentation on ACL's and regex's as they apply to slapd.

I changed the access line to read:

access to dn="userID=.*[+]hostName=(.*)[+]domainName=(.*),ou=emailUser,dc=linux-delhi,dc=org"

...and now it seems to be working fine.

Thanks for your time,
