Most likely this is a problem with the entry, not the DN.

The easiest way to troubleshoot a problem like this is often
to ssh into your devl/test ldap server and restart slapd
with the debug flag set to a high value.  You can then 
watch as slapd processes the request and see where the 
protocol error is being encountered. 

For example:

bash$ /usr/sbin/slapd -d 999

(verbose slapd debug output...)
