Yeah! :) i found  a way (/bug/feature/etc) Communicator checks for "modifytimestamp" on his profile elements. If it is not defined, communicator does not accept profile entries at all. My workaround for this "feature" -  
 in servers/slapd/add.c - add another one attribute in add_created_attrs() - 

    bv.bv_val = buf;
    bv.bv_len = strlen( bv.bv_val );
    attr_merge( e, "createtimestamp", bvals );
+    attr_merge( e, "modifytimestamp", bvals ); /* i'm not sure, that it's right solution, but for small fix... */

After this fix, communicator got all of roaming preference - mail, proxy ...
