Hmmm does the output say that logging is not enabled?

Note that an index will need to be rebuilt if you added the index after
adding entries
to the server.  Basically the reason for this is that index entries are
added during add
operations. If the index is not present while adding entries then added then
entries will not have index entries for the values that are indexed and
search results
will fail since the server relies on the index which is empty and does not
hit the master

You really need to make sure you add all the entries after creating the
index or use the
index building tool that comes with apacheds tools to populate a new index.

Hmmm this is odd because this OID corresponds to a syntax for the
distinguished name syntax and
not to an attributeType.  I guess I need to reproduce your situation and see
if I can hunt this down.
