It's not a matter of consuming my time.  We're all condemned to consume 
all of our time sooner or later.  It's a matter of consuming it on 
something we consider worth it, and enjoy it in the meanwhile.  One of 
the pleasures of working at free software is that nobody can really tell 
you what to work at :)

Slapd has no "sleeping mode" (would it make any sense?)  Do the logs 
show anything relevant *before* slapd becomes unresponsive?

You mentioned that attaching the process with gdb is not an option, 
since it's operating in a very critical environment.  However, I believe 
you wouldn't make things any worse when it's no longer responding anyway.

Not a solaris expert, sorry.
