While working on this, I learned that the global limits can either be set
in the "cn=config" entry or in "olcDatabase=frontend,cn=config". Is
a special reason for this?
This seems also to be the case for some other attributes:
olcRestricted, olcRequires. Just to name a few.
Just for backward compatibility. These options were always documented as
"global" but in fact are not, they are only valid for databases.
Originally, these attributes were write-only in cn=config - they would only be
returned in the frontendDB entry. That seems to be broken now...
