+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #205826 +++

openldap improper selfwrite access

The way openldap handles selfwrite access is broken.  Users with
selfwrite access should only be able to add/remove their own DN to the
target, but via this bug any DN may be modified.

This was fixed upstream in version 2.3.25
