Urgent: today's F14 catastrophe with openldap-servers update

Currently, the upgrade process in openldap looks like this:
* during db4 package upgrade run db_upgrade (%triggerin and %triggerun)
* if minor version of openldap changes (e.g. 2.3 -> 2.4), export the database,
  delete it and import it back (which is recommended by maintanence guide, as
  Panu mentioned)

We didn't wanted to do the export+import during each upgrade, as it takes 
quite a long time if you have large database. But it seems that current 
process doesn't work and that doing it every time will be the safest way.
(Maybe we can ignore epoch changes.)

Thanks for suggestions. I will fix it today and push an update.

Patric, thank you for reporting this. And sorry for the difficulties.
