There are a variety of modifications that the 2.2 provider doesn't
detect properly, and fails to send to refresh clients, among other
things. There are also a number of back-bdb instabilities due to the
provider code. I'd say it's mostly broken.
I am unable to cause a crash in this scenario. Please send your
slapd.conf (ACLs and syncrepl config are most relevant) as well as a
backtrace of the crash.

Extremely difficult, I think. And you must #if out all of the 2.2
provider from back-bdb to insure stability.
