Assuming I've described the symptoms clearly enough (and I likely

One should never "casually" modify schema definitions. back-bdb now stores the normalized attributes in the database, rather than normalizing repeatedly upon reading the database. If you change the case of schema definitions in between storing and reading an entry, and change the case of the attribute's canonical name, the copy in the database will no longer match the schema definition in memory.
