Description of problem:
Duplicating bz 484157 for RHDS8.1:
484157 - rhds71 (from rhcs71) timelimit not honored in some cases
Steps to reproduce the problem:
0. import a large ldif file (>= 500K entries)
1. Run ldapsearch with an range search as well as the time limit. The attribute in the range search filter should be indexed.
ldapsearch -h <host> -p <port> -D "cn=directory manager" -w <pw> -b "<base_dn>" -l <timelimit> "(&(attr>=value_1)(attr<=value_2))"
If the ldapsearch command finishes much longer than <timelimit> (e.g., <timelimit> + 10 seconds) and the return code is 3 (time limit exceeded), the bug is reproduced.
Expected result: the command finishes in (<timelimit> + 2) seconds.
