Hi Frank,

I would continue with the documentation update noting that it is 
recommended to run the syncprov overlay on replicas, so that they manage 
their CSN status based off updated received, rather than syncprov 
broadcasts.  It's really the correct way to configure a replica, regardless 
of this bug. ;)

I definitely wouldn't revert anything related to ITS8281, given that it was 
fixing some serious issues, whereas this issue, while annoying, doesn't 
actually cause harm, and has a workaround that lines up with best practices
