I forget exactly when/which versions, but you may have to specify the OID of
the password attribute, not the name, in pwdAttribute.

When the overlay is configured, it registers a syntax handler that accepts attribute names. If the overlay is not configured, then only numeric OIDs are accepted. So in general, when you see this error message, it means your configuration is wrong.
