I've seen the same crash while trying to add 10,000 entries. A patch for this 
is now in HEAD.

I should point out that it's probably not getting into an endless loop. Just 
that this test wasn't designed to handle a large number of entries. None of 
the indexing that is normally recommended for syncrepl is set up in these 
configurations, so all of the search operations that syncrepl performs will 
wind up scanning the entire DB multiple times. Also the cache size remains at 
its default, so that will cause a lot of churn as you continue to operate on 
more entries.
