Here is what I understood: my slurpd's certificate DN contains non ASCII
characters, and for that reason, I have been unable to get the slave slapd 
matching the updatedn. The solution I finally found was to use authz-regex 
to rewrite slurpd's DN into something that will match.

Well, as an OpenLDAP user, I know that once you've readen the manual and the
FAQ and it's still not working, return of experience from other users 
gathered with google is valuable. That's why I tend to post how I managed
to get the thing working. It will help people looking for the same problem I
had, and comments from contributors may help transforming that into some
better documentation.
