Good catch; please note that the original URI was valid, but it meant

$ ./libraries/libldap/urltest
generic LDAP url
PROTO: ldap
HOST: ou=Workstations,ou=Devices,dc=example,dc=com
PORT: 389
SCOPE: sub
URL: ldap://ou=Workstations,ou=Devices,dc=example,dc=com:389/?uid?sub

This error would have been caught if unique_new_domain_uri() checked that
the host portion be empty, to indicate a local URI, as in many other
functionalities of OpenLDAP's slapd.  I suggest an ITS be filed to
strengthen misconfiguration detection.
