I have tweaked rsyslog.
   $SystemLogRateLimitInverval 2

  $SystemLogRateLimitBurst 50

    *.* /var/log/everything

and dropped down on my log level for slapd.  I can already see rsyslog is not reporting as much and so far no imuxsock drops.   I'll watch it over the next few days and post the results.

Thanks Nik..

I guess that 17944 is the PID of your running slapd.

In this case, you are having the same issue as I once had - slapd will
segfault sometimes when syslog drops its messages.


Updatign to Debian wheeze fixes the issue.
