I see, your issue is caused by the fact you haven't indexed the objectClass 
attribute. When back-mdb does a search to find all the alias objects in the 
DB, instead of returning zero, it returns unknown which causes it to loop 
through all possible entryIDs looking for alias entries.

(On my laptop, "all possible" is 2^64 - 1 so yes, this will spin for .. a while.)
