It was hashing the bytes of arg. In the common case of the slapd_daemon_task
submitting jobs to the pool, arg was the socket descriptor of an active
connection, so this was always distributing those evenly.
Duh, right. Sorry.
But in other cases
where arg was a context pointer, the result was heavily skewed.
