Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: slapd

Using Intrepid Ubuntu 8.10, slapd 2.4.11-0ubuntu6

Steps to reproduce bug :-

* Take a properly constituted ldap database, with an index on uid - "index uid eq" and containing user "fred"
* stop slapd - "/etc/init.d/slapd stop"
* Remove "index uid eq" from config file
* start slapd
* add a user "test"
* stop slapd
* re-add "index uid eq" to config file
* start slapd
* verify that "ldapsearch -x '(uid=fred)'" works, and "ldapsearch -x '(uid=test)'" does not (not a bug)
* stop slapd
* re-index - "su openldap slapindex"
* start slapd
* "ldapsearch -x '(uid=test)'" still does not work

I expected the last line above to work - slapindex should rebuild all

Deleting /var/lib/ldap/uid.bdb - restarting slapd, stopping, re-
indexing, starting again finds the index correct again.
