I don't see this. The man page says "<time>". It looks correct to me.
Wouldn't it be better to consequently convert time strings such as
1d15h5s to integer seconds during migration of static config to dynamic
config? IMO for LDAP-on-the-wire those values should always be integer
representing seconds (or milli-seconds if needed).
I mean back-config content is meant to be machine-processable and
cleaner syntax would reduce unneeded complexity.
