Thanx for inside info ... :-)

And sorry that i was unable to provide more info - core dump alone is
16gb! Also, small sidenote - when this "hang" happens, it only affects
existing connections - i'm attacking it with two procesess, each 4
connection. New searches using ldapsearch work fine ...

And correction for typo - by "high load" i wrote (1-2 req/sec) -
actually it should write 1-2k reg/sec ...

What is interesting regarding this, that this "problem" goes back to
db-4.7 and openldap-2.4.23 (provided with centos) ...

I'll try alternate malloc and report back ...
