Thanks.  When I made the suffix in the slapd.conf match, it did load just fine.
I guess I never thought that case would matter.

Looking at the dc attribute:

attributetype ( 0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.25
        NAME ( 'dc' 'domainComponent' )
        DESC 'RFC1274/2247: domain component'
        EQUALITY caseIgnoreIA5Match
        SUBSTR caseIgnoreIA5SubstringsMatch

Therefore, new rule is that DN's obey case, even though the attribute in
question claims to ignore case.  The stuff in a DN isn't attributes, but I
mistakenly thought of them as attributes.

I had a sasl-regexp in slapd.conf for GSSAPI recognition and that had to match
case in order to work, too.  Now that you pointed out my error above, I didn't
have to embarass myself again by asking why that didn't work.
