In a scenario where the network is broken (or other reasons, but that's where I
hit it), slapd can get locked up waiting on writers to finish.  When that
happens, everything ends up in a pthread_cond_wait, like this:

slapd ends up hanging indefinitely.  This happened with 8 replicas connected to
the server, where for four of those replicas, the connection between the master
and the replica wouldn't connect (but you could go from the replica to the
master) at some point after the initial connection was made.

Patch to HEAD from Howard is committed.
