If I specify slapcat  -f slapd.conf -b "dc=example,dc=com" -l backup.ldif
Then no messages will be displayed in the command window and it will be in the same state.
I see somewhere code hangs in the alock.c file I think the slapcat process not able to grab the lock,is it correct? or something different.

If you have more than one database you have to use either one of command line
options -n or -b.
