"files dns" in nsswitch.conf, and no prior /etc/hosts entry. i.e., this 
overrode DNS to the 192.168.* interface. netstat shows that (by now, at 
least) this has completely taken.

Agreed, but that's a pretty awful condition to have in a long-running 
slapd process. Without db_stat (easily) working, is there any hope at 
finding clues as to how this might have happened, or is it just time to 
rm/slapadd and hope it doesn't happen again?
