If you can demonstrate that slapd(8), in response to a single
delete request, removed multiple objects, you should report a bug
(using the issue tracking system). To demonstrate, just use a
sequence of ldapsearch(1) (to show present objects), ldapdelete(1)
(to send a single delete request), ldapsearch(1) (to show
multiple objects previously present have been remove).
I note also, if you can demonstrate that the a request to
delete an alias (by specification of the alias name) results
in the deletion of the aliased object, you should also report
You should ignore the ManageDIT control comment. ManageDIT
control (also known as the Relax control) use is unnecessary
in removing of alias object.
