indexing, which means one you created more than 65536 children for an
entry, you can no longer remove it ("non leaf" is returned), even
after deleting all of its children first. This seems a bit annoying...
If you delete the first or last entry of the range the range will be
reduced by one. As such, if you delete entries in order then the range
will collapse to zero and allow deletion of the parent.
Indeed. However, if one of the middle entries is removed first, then the
parent can no longer be removed...
No. back-bdb has no other mechanism of tracking child entries. back-hdb
is superior here since the dn2id index keeps exact counts of the number
Fine. I'm having an issue with back-hdb (see ITS 4254) too, but that's
another story ;)
back-hdb in 2.3.13 also doesn't support deletes very well, see my patches
