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.

Strange, I'd have expected this to break: to behave as if the index was present but empty: No preexisting entries get the (old) index value of the eq filter, so all entries would be filtered away. What am I missing?

Hm, good point. Either way, it's bad.
