cannot delete an entry !?

I entered a wrong entry, how ? no matter , now I want to remove it  but
I cannot  :-(.

$ldapsearch -x -b "dc=int-evry,dc=fr" "uid=*toto*"
version: 2

# filter: uid=*toto*
# requesting: ALL

# toto,People,dc=int-evry,dc=fr,People,dc=int-evry,dc=fr
dn: uid=toto,ou=People,dc=int-evry,dc=fr,ou=People,dc=int-evry,dc=fr
uid: gilles
uid: toto,ou=People,dc=int-evry,dc=fr

here the entry is found, but the dn is wrong.
dn: uid=toto,ou=People,dc=int-evry,dc=fr,ou=People,dc=int-evry,dc=fr

should be

dn: uid=toto,ou=People,dc=int-evry,dc=fr

I just want to remove it , how ?

$cat /tmp/dn 
dn: uid=toto\,ou=People\,dc=int-evry\,dc=fr,ou=People,dc=int-evry,dc=fr
changetype: delete

$ldapmodify -x -W -D"cn=admin,dc=int-evry,dc=fr" -f /tmp/dn
