(ITS#6572) slapd crash caused by refint's cn=config modification

after a silly typo (removed the "," rdn-separator character) in refint's
cn=config settings while modifying "olcRefintNothing" attribute the attribute
contained the following escaped value:

olcRefintNothing: cn=refintcn\3Dconfig

Using ldapmodify with cn=config to correct this value back into e.g.
"cn=refint,cn=config" caused slapd to crash.

Re-starting slapd (recovering db files...) worked fine but the value of course
is still the "ugly" one above. Trying to correct (using ldapmodify) this value
once more caused slapd to crash again.
