From memory ldbmcat adds an extra attribute to the end of each entry for the 
last modification date which is probably the cause of the problems.  It's not 
difficult to write a Perl script to parse LDIF files and remove such things.  
Send me private email if you want copies of some of my trivial LDIF 
manipulation scripts such as an LDIF grep that returns complete records.
