I'm testing the latest release of OpenLDAP 2.4.36 and my slapd stop while i'm doing a change on cn=config.
My tests are with my own compilation of OpenLDAP on a RHEL6 server but i see the same problem with "LTB project RPMs" http://ltb-project.org/wiki/download#openldap with RHEL6 package.

My aim is to modify cn=config like this in order to implement TLS, here is my ldif :

dn: cn=config
changetype: modify
add: olcTLSRandFile
olcTLSRandFile: /dev/random

The server shutdown when i add this entry and with slapd option "-d 255" i have :
slapd: result.c:813: slap_send_ldap_result: Assertion `!((rs->sr_err)<0)' failed.
/etc/init.d/slapd: line 285:  5461 Aborted                 $SLAPD_BIN -h "$SLAPD_SERVICES" $SLAPD_PARAMS

Notice that i test this ldif modification on release 2.4.35 without problem.

Is there any changes inside cn=config behavior with release 2.4.36 that i don't see ?

Thanks in advance,

PS: In attachment my cn=config with slapcat, and the lines when starting slapd with debug -d 255.
