Large collections of values can be slow for some uses; have you looked

That doesn't seem terribly large, no.  sortvals is more pertinent if  
you have 100k+ values on the attribute...

This looks like you added -d to your ldapmodify.  More useful here  
would be server logs; try running slapd with -d 263 so we can see more  
of what the server is trying. (1+2+4+256)

Can you attach a gdb backtrace taken during the hang?  (thread apply  
all backtrace full)
