After the master that was not accepting direct writes re-sync'd with the 
master accepting writes, it still had 403/50000 entries wrong.  So did its 
replica.  So the master isn't writing the changes to the accesslog.  So 
it's option c.  The master rejects a valid op, never sync's correctly, and 
in the end 2/3rds of my servers have invalid databases.

I see zero indication that using a sessionlog works around 
<http://www.openldap.org/its/index.cgi/?findid=8125> at all.  I still end 
up with missed entries even with everything *in* the sessionlog.
