OK, I've updated the HOWTO at:
It now shows that the problem is an outdated schema rather than a bug.
Just out of curiosity, how much effort would be required to update to
RFC2307bis and how much closer would that get us to a resolution of the
issue?  I'm thinking that there is a possibility that it may not be
nescesary due to incomeing Mandrake 10.1, which I believe uses a more
recent version of OpenLDAP.  I'll check.
