Obviously since OpenLDAP's behavior here is "by design" it is not a
bug. Just a note - there have been at least two attempts to overhaul
the Debug/Syslog support in recent years. Neither made visible
progress. At this point the infrastructure exists to log individual
messages at distinct priority levels, but nobody has been interested
in taking the time to sift through all of the existing Debug messages
and assign them specific priorities. If you would like to see your
bug report make any progress, most likely you are going to need to
come up with the person with that time and motivation.

That person would be me.  I would be happy to do the work if the
prospect exists of me working towards getting the changes incorporated
into the main OpenLDAP code base.  This change would be very useful to us.

Great. Then I suggest you start with http://www.openldap.org/devel/ and then read include/ldap_log.h in the source. Then rewrite the desired Debug invocations in the slapd source, and forward your patch as a followup to your ITS.
