slurpd core dump on exit (ITS#2363)

OS: AIX 4.3
Submission from: (NULL) (188.8.131.52)
I experience a core dump when my slurpd is shutting down on an AIX platform.
I run my LDAP environment across several OS's and several platforms. AIX is the
only one where this problem occurs. The core dump occurs just about every time
I shut the slurpd down and it always has the same call stack.
I have done several things in trying to diagnose this problem:
1. tested pthread_kill.
2. looked for memory leaks using purify on the slurpd process.
3. undefined HAVE_PTHREAD_KILL
and other little tricks.
1. pthread_kill works great in all my tests.
3. The process cored when it got to pthread_cond_broadcast()
Here is my call stack at the time of the core dump:

I have found this same behavior in OpenLdap versions 2.0.23,2.0.27, and 2.1.12
