(My original message, which presents the problem, is at the bottom.)
Thank you for your responses, here is some more information:
> You didn't mention what version of slapd you're running.
That's right, sorry. I'm running Debian-packaged slapd 2.2.23-8,
using bdb 4.2.52-18 (everything on my system is the Debian sarge's
packages, except for the kernel, which is a recompiled Ubuntu 6.06
kernel, 2.6.12 SMP).
I'll note that 2.2.23 is a very very old release. A number of
optimizations were made for the 2.3 release, that may or may not resolve
this issue for you. I'd at least try 2.3.30, which had a bunch of the
connection code re-worked. It has been uploaded into unstable, and is
scheduled to go out with etch, I believe.
