I asked the Debian BDB maintainers, and the answer is copied below.
The version of BDB in Debian is currently 4.2.52-24. BDB
4.2.52-18 is part of Sarge. Sarge ships with OpenLDAP 2.2.23,
which is a very old release of
OpenLDAP, and there were some bugs fixed with checkpointing and open
transactions *after* that release. So that may be the issue you are
hitting. Are you *sure* you are running OpenLDAP 2.3.32 on
Yes, I built it myself, and included the sync logging patch that Aaron
Richton kindly pointed me to back in January.
We build most of our critical apps (OpenLDAP, Samba, Apache and a few
others) but BDB isn't on that list.
