This isn't an indication of a problem, and is quite normal to occur. Tell
GDB to ignore sigpipes.
As for the rest of your email, remember that OpenLDAP is provided free of
charge, and the people who work on it often do so on a volunteer basis. If
you think the other open source LDAP software packages or even commercial
packages are better, go use one and learn why they aren't.
Every initial release series of OpenLDAP, and pretty much any software I've
ever used, have had problems with new features. If you find this unusual,
you've led a blessed life. Multi-Master is in and of itself problematic in
its concept, and I expect it will be a while before every single issue is
shaken out of the woodwork. However, given the generally *declining*
number of bugs filed against MMR, I'd say its quality has improved markedly.
I wouldn't consider OpenLDAP 2.3 stable until around the 30 somethingish
release, btw, if you were using some of the new features (like syncrepl,
If what you need is immediate on demand support, then I would advise you
look into a support contract with one of the companies that provides
support for OpenLDAP. That's what I've always done at the companies I work
at that depend on their LDAP deployment.
