Description of problem:
When renaming an LDAP entry, the system maintained 'modifyTimestamp'
attribute remains unchanged. According to a response from an openldap
mailing-list, this doesn't happen in Openldap-2.2.17, but due to the
Berkley DB dependancies, I can't get the 2.2.17 version compiled to
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a non-leaf entry in an OpenLDAP database
2. Rename the entry
3. confirm that the modifyTimestamp remains unchanged
Actual Results: The modifyTimestamp remains unchanged on a rename
Expected Results: Renaming an entry invoves at the very least,
changing it's DN and RDN which should result in the modifyTimestamp
