One should never "casually" modify schema definitions. back-bdb now

change the case of the attribute's canonical name, the copy in the
database will no longer match the schema definition in memory.
Assuming I've described the symptoms clearly enough (and I likely
haven't), is this behavior a "bug" or is it just a demonstration of the
kind of trouble that can occur with "casual" schema file modification?
