I got it working.. my problem was actually that my  slave (a copy of the master's vm) had the master's hostname on in /etc/hosts.  Oops.

Works great now.  I will be re-doing it to use TLS.

One thing that I did was add a checkpoint directive since the ubuntu server guide instructions didn't include one.  I am not sure I got it right.  I am still somewhat mystified by the correspondence between what you might put in slapd.conf and what ldif you need to get the same effect with the cn=config method.

dn: olcOverlay={0}syncprov,olcDatabase={2}hdb,cn=config
add: olcSpCheckPoint
olcSpCheckPoint: 100 10
