'Dear Steffen,

Apologies for the delay in replying.

No I didn't encounter the problem again, at least, I haven't spotted any 
hanging slapadd processes.  But I'm not looking for them either.  I think 
it is a rare race condition.  From your de
scription you may well have found a new way to trigger a similar deadlock.

I provided a patch, and another suggested way of fixing the issue I 
encountered, and as you can see from the openldap-technical archive, I had 
one short reply from Howard on the subject and
 nothing thereafter.  Likewise ITS#8436 has sat in Incoming since it was 
raised in June without comment.

My feeling is that the OpenLDAP code base is now too big for the number of 
active developers, pushing rare issues like this right to the bottom of 
their queue.  I doubt it'll get fixed.

Best regards,
