The latest 4.3 was 4.3.29, as I recall. I haven't kept track of the 4.3
changes since then (especially now that BDB 4.4 is out).
The particular causes of this crash are now fixed in CVS HEAD

Basically correct. However, if you use cn=config to update the back-bdb
configuration, everything will get updated automatically. The reason
this dbconfig option was added was primarily to support dynamic
configuration changes in cn=config; it is intended that once you start
using it you should never edit configuration by any other methods.

Also, you don't need to do an explicit db_recover in your init script,
since back-bdb will do it automatically when necessary.

Don't do that, either. Use slapadd -q instead. Since as you say, most of
the time the DB_CONFIG file will be the same, there's no good reason to
keep deleting and recreating it.
