I believe that the attached patch fixes the issue for your particular
issue. But say if have unnormalised requests (multiple adds, replaces,
deletes in an arbitrary order) always on the same attribute it won't do
To do it right we would have to apply manually all changes on the actual
"description" attribute in "samldb_description_check" and check the
result. An example would be the handling of the "objectclass" attribute
in the "objectclass" LDB module.
So if you would like to apply this as an intermediate solution, fine.
Anyway we should also think about a "description" test enhancement in
