OpenLDAP 2.4.7 Release (2007/12/14)
     Added slapd ordered indexing of integer attributes (ITS#5239)
Note that the above caused an incompatible format change in the
back-bdb/hdb index databases. If you've used any presence indexing or
equality indexing of integer attributes, you'll need to run slapindex to
get the new format.
	slapindex -q -t
should do the trick.

As one who forgot this advice, what behaviour can I expect to see? I have an "eq" index on e.g. uidNumber, with no apparent ill-effect.

You probably have too small a database for it to make a visible difference, or nobody is doing equality searches on the uidNumber attribute. If you don't re-index, then you're essentially running the same as no index on your integer attributes. Likewise, all of your presence indices are invalid.
