That was the problem, I had the top level suffix. I changed it, and now
the refs work fine.

I just looked at the database files, and it seems that it happened to me

>From the "top" database directory:

$ strings * | grep -i jacksonm  

dn: uid=jacksonm, ou=accounts, dc=peelo ,dc=com
cn: jacksonm                    
homeDirectory: /home/jacksonm

$ strings * | grep -i jacksonm  

dn: uid=jacksonm,ou=accounts,dc=peelo,dc=com
uid: jacksonm                   
homeDirectory: /home/jacksonm

What to do about this? Or is this expected behavior?
