Before you report a bug, make sure you review the FAQ and
then post your question to the openldap-software list,
rather than creating a bug report.

You should never 'kill -9' the slapd process, as you may be
risking database corruption (if you have uncached modifications).

However, that probably is not your problem.  In the manner you
started it, slapd is a daemon and just quietly goes into the
background (sometimes a little too quietly).  Use the ps command
to find out if it is still running, and use the -d flag to set
higher levels of debugging (eg. -d 65535, but you won't want to
run long that way).  Sometimes slapd will start up and then 
exit with a problem in the schema files, but it has divorced
itself from the terminal too quickly to report it there.

In any case, from what you have described, it's quite possible
that everything has worked correctly, since you don't describe
any subsequent attempts to perform searches, etc.
