The slapcat man page says in the Limitations section:
In general, your slapd(8) should not be running (at least, not in
read-write mode) when you do this to ensure consistency of the database.
However, I've been told several times that this only applies to ldbm and not
bdb. Not sure about other types, but it would be good to clarify this section.
