I compiled OpenLDAP 2.2.24 using ./config:

CPPFLAGS='-I/usr/home/qualitas/usr/local/include' \
LDFLAGS='-L/usr/home/qualitas/usr/local/lib' \
'./configure' \
'--prefix=/usr/home/qualitas/usr/local' \

each time I try again, I run

make veryclean
make depend
make install

I'm using BDB 4.3.27 from SleepyCat.

Among other settings, slapd.conf has

threads 4

database        bdb

I call slapd as follows:

~~/usr/local/libexec/slapd -h ldap://qualitas.com -d 1

When I exercise it (run Softerra's LDAP Browser as well as Mozilla Thunderbird
1.0), after a little while slapd fails with the above error message.

I have a 25MB slapd.core, but I have no idea what to look for in it.  I've seen
this error message discussed before in the mailing lists, but none of the
solutions seem to apply here.
