Well, the consumer's definitely not acting on a full dump in either case. :/

In my latest test, after the purge, I have:

# accesslog
dn: cn=accesslog

contextCSN: 20080909190440.484524Z#000000#000#000000

contextCSN: 20080909190440.484524Z#000000#000#000000

on the master and

contextCSN: 20080909183254.258851Z#000000#000#000000

on the replica prior to starting it.  SO the replica is clearly behind. 
The new entry on the master is:

dn: uid=qtest7,cn=admins,cn=zimbra
entryCSN: 20080909190440.484524Z#000000#000#000000

which matches the CSN on both the main DB and accesslog DB.

now, staring the replica, we find:

contextCSN: 20080909190440.484524Z#000000#000#000000

So, it believes it has sync'd now, but uid=qtest7 doesn't exist!
