I guess the problem is on my part. I have entries with multivalue  
attributes like

epdtag: test
epdtag: experience
epdtag: information technology
epdtag: life, universe and everything
epdtag: hotshot
epdtag: programmer
epdtag: kimmsta

Notice the empty string attribute in there? It caused the import to  
fail (with a #!ERROR Record is invalid"). Are those values allowed in  
LDIF files? Removing that empty attribute ensures the import works.
