> thank you - that explains it.  i'm left wondering how those acls for frontend and config got there - i don't recall ever explicitly setting them.  slapd isn't listening on a local socket, which would render them quite useless, right?

> on a related note, regarding the frontend database - reading a bit in the admin guide, my understanding is that the frontend database is the appropriate location for such acls as olcAccess: to dn.base="" by * read - is this correct?  i've done this, and the behavior is now as i expect, but just curious about typical practices.

i've found this comment - http://www.mail-archive.com/openldap-technical@openldap.org/msg00491.html - which would seem to confirm my understanding of the frontend database as it relates to acls.
