Thanks for the pointer.
I was using Debian's upstream which I doubt is the latest release. I'll look tomorrow.
I don't think filing a bug is the correct thing to do since as Dieter pointed out the problem is with bogus mail applications breaking the RFC and not a bug in OpenLDAP. However with the practicality of using UTF-8 for the mail attribute value is pragmatic. Thoughts?
If, as you say, slapd asserts, then there's also a bug in the code,
since invalid data should be catched earlier. Fixing this has little to
do with solving your problem, but would improve the software.
