Seems not enough for instance # record 3
linkID: 2048

I didn't find the backlink 2049 for it.

I think the rule if more any attribute with DN, DN+String, DN+Binary 
synthax that doesn't have a valid backlink id.

I'm trying to do this right now. I realized that in order to have sites 
really working (and so being able to move from 1 site to another a DC) 
we need to have link working correctly otherwise there is too much 
dangling links.
