I just filed it http://www.openldap.org/its/index.cgi?findid=5034
It may be duplicated reported, I seem to recall when I was doing a
google search on how to use '-E' I came across a page someone reported
this issue (he used '-e' rather then '-E'), but I can never find that
webpage again today.

Yes but in most cases I am troubled with, eerm, getting only the default
language version, that is getting only "cn=Wong Penghui" but not
-E mv="cn=*Penghui" wouldn't work because by RFC 2596, server should
think cn;lang-zh=Wang Penghui matches cn=*Penghui
