Starting from Ubuntu 8.04, slapd is protected by an apparmor profile.
Since you're using a non-standard directory for you database, you'll get
a permission error. You should see audit messages in /var/log/kern.log
related to slapd.
You should adjust your slapd profile to include your directory. See 
for more information on how-to update an apparmor profile.
