This isn't a problem - we know exactly when refresh completes, so we can
finish the batch regardless of how many entries are left over.
Testing this out with the experimental ITS#8040 patch - with lazy commit
the 2.8M entries (2.5GB data) takes ~10 minutes for the refresh to pull
them across. With batching 500 entries/txn+lazy commit it takes ~7
minutes, a decent improvement. It's still 2x slower than slapadd -q
though, which loads the data in 3-1/2 minutes.
In case anyone else wants to try this out, patch attached.
