Stepped right in it!
One workaround I managed is to create the users on a slightly older
server-install and dump that to a file, then pump that file into the
newer ldap base.

As in:
Create users on old server, then
/etc/init.d/slapd stop
/etc/init.d/nscd stop
slapcat -l users.ldif
/etc/init.d/slapd start
/etc/init.d/nscd start

move that users.ldif to new server and

/etc/init.d/slapd stop
/etc/init.d/nscd stop
slapadd -cv -l users.ldif      (see man slapadd for switches)
/etc/init.d/slapd start
/etc/init.d/nscd start

And a hint: Troubles with newer slapd packages (as in sarge and sid) are
even worse! Do not upgrade before these troubles are solved.
