Our configuration uses both BDB and META back-ends; as it turns out the standard debian package of LDAP fails to run with the META back-end configured (see also complaints here: http://www.openldap.org/lists/openldap-bugs/200705/msg00011.html and here: http://arkiv.netbsd.se/?ml=OpenLDAP-bugs&a=2007-02&t=3076794).
Yeah, we're still trying to figure out the best way to fix that. libtool has some serious problems with how it handles namespaces when dynamically loading modules, and fixing one set of problems creates a separate set of problems. (This particular problem is Debian-specific and not a problem with the upstream OpenLDAP.)
Well, the good news is that it isn't a show-stopper, and the simple workaround is to compile the code from scratch.
What's really bothering me, is that the system repeatedly and frequently hangs with my configuration ... (my users aren't happy with me recently). Do you have any idea how to investigate that ?
