Just for clarification--the inference here is that for the ACL system to associate a SASL authenticated 
user with a particular entry, the DN must have at least the UID in common with the SASL authname so that 
a regex ACL can be created.  Currently my user DNs are of the form cn=[full name],ou=People,o=[Company 
name],c=CA.  There *is* a uid field in each entry, but the uids aren't currently part of the DN.  It 
looks like I'm going to have to change all my user DNs so that they incorporate the uid.  Is this 
assumption correct?

I experienced the same difficulty with this as Stéphane did.  Attempting to start slapd with the above 
ACL results in the following error:
