ITS #723: OK (ITS#925)

The changes related to ITS #723 that were applied to the release code
are ok.
Old clients using an empty default search base work correctly now.
I found out that the same behaviour can be obtained by setting

suffixAlias    ""    "mybase"
suffix    "mybase"
suffix    ""

the sequence is significant as the suffixAlias config line is overly
checked, in
that both strings are tested by calling select_backend and in case the
backend is returned the reading fails with a warning, but without
stopping the
slapd. I submitted a patch (ITS #913) which in my opinion corrects this

I suggest to leave the defaultSearchBase in place because it represents
a cleaner
way to explicitly have a default search base rather than using a side
effect of
the suffix alias feature.
