Does your database contain an entry for "o=ISU,c=US"? This logging:

tells me that the base object used in the search was not found by
slapd. Use ldbmcat and see if that entry is in your database; if not,
add it. If an entry for "o=ISU, c=US" is in there, I suspect there
is a bug somewhere. The OSF/1 port of slapd is not well tested....
