Public bug reported:

it appears that in 2.4.23-0ubuntu3, the nssov overlay is absent from the
package.  this was not the case in the previous version
(2.4.21-0ubuntu5.2).  the following files are missing:


this severely breaks installations that were using the overlay, as it is
referenced from the config, but cannot be loaded, resulting in dpkg
failing and completely breaking the upgrade process:

Setting up slapd (2.4.23-0ubuntu3.2) ...
  Backing up /etc/ldap/slapd.d/ in /var/backups/slapd-2.4.21-0ubuntu5.3... done.
  Moving old database directories to /var/backups:
  Loading from /var/backups/slapd-2.4.21-0ubuntu5.3: 
  - directory dc=example,dc=com... failed.

Loading the database from the LDIF dump failed with the following
error while running slapadd:
    lt_dlopenext failed: (nssov) file not found
    config error processing cn=module{0},cn=config: <olcModuleLoad> handler exited with 1
    slapadd: bad configuration directory!
dpkg: error processing slapd (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

1) >lsb_release -rd
Description:	Ubuntu 10.10
Release:	10.10

2) >apt-cache policy slapd
  Installed: 2.4.23-0ubuntu3.2
  Candidate: 2.4.23-0ubuntu3.2
  Version table:

     2.4.23-0ubuntu3 0

3) i expected the nssov overlay to load

4) it did not, causing slapd to fail, which in turn caused dpkg to fail.
