+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #696407 +++
Description of problem:
The symptom is if an RDN contains upper case characters, and the entry is deleted (== turned into a tombstone entry), the entry cannot be found any more.
Plus these messages are logged in the error log again and again...
[13/Apr/2011:13:13:45 -0700] _entry_set_tombstone_rdn - Failed to convert DN uid=jmcFarla to RDN
[13/Apr/2011:13:13:45 -0700] id2entry - str2entry returned NULL for id 30, string="rdn"
This bug was introduced with the bug fix for the bug 684996:
Bug 684996 - Exported tombstone cannot be imported correctly.

git patch file (master)
Description: When an entry is turned to be a tombstone, the RDN
part is replaced with this unusual format:
A helper function slapi_rdn_replace_rdn was introduced to support
the replace task, in which function, normalized rdn field "nrdn"
was supposed to have lowered case RDN, but it was not.
This patch fixes it.
Since RHEL 6.1 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
