As I initially stated, there is nothing in your bug report to indicate a 
bug with OpenLDAP.  I would note that BDB 4.7.25 is ancient.  I would note 
that OpenLDAP 2.4.30 is fairly old.  Who knows how OpenLDAP or BDB was 
built with those packages you are using.  There certainly isn't enough 
detail in your report to really offer you any particular direction to 
pursue.  If it was *me*, I would build the latest OpenLDAP with a current 
version of BDB, where I could control the compile options and flags.

By the way, BDB support in OpenLDAP is essentially deprecated.  All ongoing 
development is with the new MDB backend.
