Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 356401
slapd aborts on startup when /etc/openldap/ldap.conf contains an invalid TLS_CACERT entry

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #165172 +++
Description of problem:
Use the specified /etc/openldap/ldap.conf file and any slapd.conf file you
want. When you try to start slapd, it aborts with
slapd: ../../../libraries/libldap_r/rdwr.c:93: ldap_pvt_thread_rdwr_destroy:
Assertion `rw != ((void *)0)' failed.

The readability of the CACERT file can be checked in init script, in the same
way as TLS files from slapd.conf.
User will see during startup:
/mnt/testarea/ca.crt is not readable by "ldap" [WARNING]
Starting slapd: [FAILED]
This should be enough for the user to trace down his/her error.
