Yes, that's what I figured out, though it was only a guess based on my knowledge of the same sort of thing in PostgreSQL. I found no note in the INSTALL or README files about it, which would have been handy.

Please keep replies to the list.

Every release of OpenLDAP I've dealt with (2.0->2.1->2.2->2.3) has required a database export/import... There is a reason the version number is a major change rather than a minor one. ;)
