Log Message:
ITS#5189  add note about db_stat and slapd needing to be run when using
quick mode.

This note is incorrect and inappropriate. It is inappropriate because db_stat is a BerkeleyDB specific command, it has no relevance to the generic features of slapadd. It is incorrect because most other db_stat options still work. db_stat -c is not "broken" here either; db_stat -c attempts to return lock status information and it correctly tells you that there is no lock information to return. That is not an error, nor does it need fixing.

On the other hand, users may expect certain things to work, which require a full BDB environment, that is not present when -q is used. I don't see harm in coming up with an appropriate note that the resulting environment from using -q is not fully usable as one may have come to expect when using bdb/hdb in the more general case.
