RE: Slapd dies during load querying, corrupts DB (ITS#2164)

Those files maintain the Berkeley DB environment state. Generally you should
not touch those files. Next time try using the db_recover command instead,
but read the Berkeley DB documentation first. (Removing the __db.* files
probably isn't harmful; the db_recover command will do this itself if it is
unable to recover the environment any other way.)
