Additionally did the following:

Stopped the replica again, purged its db, restarted it so it got a fresh 
sync from the master (all users present).

stopped the replica, added a new user on the master, let it expire from the 
accesslog db.

started the replica.  New user is not replicated.

So it essentially appears that once -w is used to slapadd a master, no 
replica will be consistent if changes occur that are purged before the 
replica gets them.
