OK, this is exactly what I expect from openldap. The search must occur
before or after the update but not during. But the problem I have
encountered suggests that this is not what happens since the entry which
is updated exists BEFORE the update and still exists AFTER the
update. So why does the search fail randomly when it is started during the 
update. If the search was executed before or after, the search would always 
succeed since the entry always exists!
