slapadd complains that the error is in line 1665. As far as I know
lines starting with a blank are continued lines. 
so I wrote a script that concatenates these lines. line 1665 is now:
nsliversion: 1

This line occurs about 500 times in my LDIF data file. slapadd does
not complain about this line earlier in my LDIF file. 
So what did I do wrong when counting the lines?

Another question: Is the order of the nodes being inserted relevant? I
mean, if I insert a node referring to an node not being inserted yet
(with an "owner"-attribute),  does this work with slapadd?
ldapadd would complain, no question, but how is this with slapadd?
Does slapadd do a integritycheck on the data? (I guess not, but don't
know exactly)

Here's the perl script (running it with cat ldif | continuelines.pl >
use strict;
my $first=1;
while (<>) {
   unless (/^ .+/) { unless ($first) { print("\n");} }
    else { s/^ //; }
