Re: segmentation fault when attempting to delete olcOverlay={0}syncprov entry in cn=config (Runtime) Configuration

Ralf and everyone,

Yes. The problematic thing is deleting complete objects (e.g. overlays,
databases). Deleting single Attributes should work just fine and doesn't

It'll probably just deny to execute the operations (e.g. when removing
overlay entries from the frontend or config db). But I consider that
better than crashing the server :).
