It's not clear to me that this is a bug. slapschema sends output to stdout, 
not stderr. (And the manpage documents this fact.) Which implies that the 
output it produces is considered to be normal, not error messages. It also 
continues processing, independent of the -c continue option, which also 
implies that it does not consider these situations to be errors.

Leaving this alone for now.
