I don't have a Debian Squeeze server at present so I cannot
check that.

Where is this documented? I am having great trouble finding
any clear description of how to actually access cn=config in
the bootstrap case. Similarly I cannot find anything that
clearly describes the use of SASL EXTERNAL with ldapi.

If you can point me at some authoritative statements I will
propose a patch for the Admin Guide.
