Eh, I'm not sure it should be in the man page.  The point is, if you ever 
want guaranteed atomic writes, you have to use slapo-accesslog to serialize 
them.  That's an issue that affects other LDAP servers as well.

AS Pierangelo said:

There is no guarantee of DSA-wide or even database-wide atomicity in write 
operations, including internal ones.  This was never even intended to be in 
place.  This is a known design limitation not only of slapo-unique, but 
also of slapd (and, I'd say, of LDAP itself).
