Is the refint module synchronous or transaction based? 

I'm seeing some *very* odd effects in my test script, that could be
explained if the overlay did it's work asynchronously after returning
success to the client (for the original operation). 

Things I'm seeing are:  When loaded as a per-database overlay, the
search for:


fails in my test script, but succeeds if I restart slapd and search with
ldbsearch.  Just earlier in the script, cn=ldaptestcontainer is renamed
to cn=ldaptestcontainer2.

If I load the overlay globally, this entry (cn=ldaptestuser4) actually
disappears completely, including the member reference.  (It shouldn't be
deleted, but perhaps one of the earlier operations triggers it). 

This seems very odd - if you don't have any clues, I'll look into
running this over TCP (rather than ldapi) and get a trace.
