I did this change, but as I reported just a minute ago, there was another issue 
with a
hidden syntax problem regarding MDB and HDB (leftover olcDbXXX object 
specifiers and a
nasty typo). The problems played "Ringelpiez" with me and so I turned in 
circles trying
to catch up.

Problem solved! Was homebrewn. I edited the LDIF files for the config when I 
changed from
HDB backend to MDB backend and somehow I had some terrible typos and syntax 
faults which
where triggered now (and I do not know why, but I do not ask anymore).
