Schema update: object class description not changing

Hi everyone,

I am maintaining some custom schema for a couple of eDir 8.8
installations. The schema version is contained in each objectclass's
description field.
This works fine when the schema is removed and then added (over LDAP).

However, when I _modify_ the classes the description is not changed,
even for classes that have some attribute changes.
So when my 1.3-to-1.4 update LDIF looks like this:

# egCompany (effective class)
dn: cn=schema
changetype: modify
delete: objectClasses
objectClasses: ( egcompany-oid NAME 'egCompany' )
-
add: objectClasses
objectClasses: ( egcompany-oid NAME 'egCompany' SUP Top STRUCTURAL MUST
( CN ) MAY ( egAccount $ egStatus ) X-NDS_NAMING ( 'cn' ) DESC 'Schema
version: 1.4' )
-

The description for egCompany is not updated to read 'Schema version: 1.4'.
Is the description for a class a write-once field or something, or am I
looking at a slight bug?
Regards,

Mark

I'm thinking "bug", personally, but I'll ask.

This is a bug (#869035). If you're still around and you see this
message, engineering would like to collect a supportconfig from you. If
you are the one that opened SR #10883505747, you might just submit the
supportconfig via that. If not, let me know that you're still around and
we'll work something else out.
