Error when doing replication (ITS#1861)

there seems to be an error, when using the replication feature.
Replication works fine on my system until bigsized data is to be replicated.
Personally this happens on my system, when data from Netscape Communicator
(roaming access) is to be replicated.

My historydata has a size of about 96 Kb,
(netscape-profile.schema -> 
   attributetype ( 2.16.840.1.113730.3.1.402 NAME 'nsLIData'
   SYNTAX ) 
this exceeds 65535 bytes which is the size of 


( in ldap-init.h).

When doing the change the master-server stores the 96kb data
without any problem.

The replication-process stops with an error.
I show you the error message as written in my logfile :

ber_scanf fmt ({iat) ber:

connection_closing: readying conn=1 sd=12 for close

What makes the error really problematic is,
that there's no error-message in 
the files in /var/run/openldap-slurp 
(the localstate-dir i used to configure).

Specially the file slurpd.replog shows no error
message, the data seems to be replicated correctly.

I have to emphasize again, that the error occurs ONLY 
in the replication-process.

If you want more information about my configuration
or the logfiles you can contact me naturally.
