Description of problem:
Error deleteing object
When trying to delete an object
#!ERROR [LDAP: error code 66 - Not Allowed On Non-leaf]

The following error msg occurs when attempting to delete an object that has

#!CONNECTION ldap://lgnrca10.lnx.local:636
#!DATE 2014-01-13T13:11:34.972
#!ERROR [LDAP: error code 66 - Not Allowed On Non-leaf]
dn: ou=auto.home,ou=mounts,dc=ca,dc=gov
changetype: delete

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Unknown

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup multi-master DS environment
2. Need to create an object that has tombonNumSubordinates
3. Attempt to delete it.

Actual results: Directory server returns non-leaf entry while trying to remove
a leaf entry.

Expected results: Successful deletion...

Additional info:

I can no longer reproduce any errors. All versions seem to be working now after I redid my setup.

I am sort of reproducing this error, but I get an operations error first:

deleting children of: uid=mark180,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com
removing uid=mark35,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com
ldap_delete: Operations error (1)
ldap_delete: Operation not allowed on non-leaf (66)

So we get an error 1(operations error) when trying to delete uid=mark180, then ldapdelete just tries to delete the parent ou=people,dc=example,dc=com", which of course returns error 66 as there are still many entries beneath it:

[07/Apr/2014:10:32:14 -0400] conn=5 op=293 DEL dn="uid=mark180,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com"
[07/Apr/2014:10:32:15 -0400] conn=5 op=293 RESULT err=1 tag=107 nentries=0 etime=1 csn=5342b6f1000000040000
[07/Apr/2014:10:32:15 -0400] conn=5 op=294 DEL dn="ou=people,dc=example,dc=com"
[07/Apr/2014:10:32:15 -0400] conn=5 op=294 RESULT err=66 tag=107 nentries=0 etime=0

So the error 66 is expected and normal in this case, but the operations error on the previous delete is not. Still investigating.

I could recreate numsubordinates being incorrectly updated during imports when processing tombstone entries. Leaving the parent entry with a numsubordinate count higher than expected - which would lead to an error 66 if you try to delete the subtree. This is isolated to 1.2.11, as 1.3.1 and up have the correct logic. Patch attached.

Thanks, Mark. If you could also adjust the comment, I'd appreciate it. It's totally wrong... :(
