However, If you simply installed Ubuntu 14.04 and ran "apt-get install
slapd", you probably don't have 2.4.39, but actually 2.4.31 plus some
patches. Confirm that using "dpkg-query --list slapd" or "apt-cache
policy slapd". That version lacks fixes for some known mdb bugs (e.g.
Debian bug #722090), so if you want to use mdb you should upgrade to a
later version, either building from source yourself, or using the deb
packages provided by ltb-project.org or by Symas.
