I can confirm that I also saw such a strange effect on a customer's server
running OpenLDAP 2.4.28 with back-hdb based on BDB 5.2.x (not sure about x).
All compiled as 64-bit software on HP-UX 10.x (not sure about the exact
version). I don't have easy access to this production system so it's quite
hard to examine this. But I'm somewhat glad I'm not alone.

In my case I had to use search base ou=xxx,dc=example,dc=org instead of also
valid dc=example,dc=org to find the entries. I also examined that no ACLs were
standing in the way.

Ciao, Michael.
