When you have an error somewhere in overlay specs (the '$' things),
then the current overlay code stops processing the whole entry
and returns it as-is.

This is another thing to improve, but as long as you don't have
an error in the specs, you should be fine.

I've taken a look in the LDIF but didn't spot the error. I might
take another look when I get a chance unless you solve it before.
