On 7/11/2006, you specifically asked why slapcat was failing, that's why 
the discussion about it has continued.

In any case, I assume the Debian upgrade script does the right thing as far 
as doing backups, i.e., it iterates over the entire slapd.conf file, 
looking for every occurrence of the "database" keyword, and then backs up 
each of those databases individually in their own LDIF file, and skips any 
unsupported database backends for backups.
