Oh sad! I didn't have time to test this. But the failure was
predictable. Thanks for reporting.

Also, this bug is already reported upstream and currently dormant

For reference, this is http://bugs.debian.org/595540.

So what's next? I will try to convert the slapd.conf template to
slapd.d snippets and upload a fixed version. I still don't know if
this is doable in a reasonable time (before squeeze!). In the long
term this move will ease maintenance of kolabd.
