I found my problem. Is this a bug?
1. Upgrading openldapd (potato) --> slapd (unstable) automatically
removes (not purges) openldapd.
2. On boot, /etc/init.d/openldapd from openldapd package starts slapd.
3. Later, /etc/init.d/slapd from slapd package starts slapd again, but
it fails because slapd was already running.
Hence, none of my changes to /etc/init.d/slapd had any affect, because
/etc/init.d/openldapd was getting used instead.
Yes, /etc/init.d/openldapd checks that /usr/sbin/slapd exists, but as
the slapd package provides this same file, the check is useless in
this case. However, I feel that because openldapd has been removed,
then /etc/init.d/openldapd should be a NOP and return immediately.
