I read my max number of clients and set dbtsize to this limit. So the connections
array doesnt contain more than dbtsize structs, this should do the work...just as
you mentioned.
No I have another max constants read from registry that checks the current number
of threads and refuses any new threads if this limit has been exceeded.

Could be needed if you wish to monitor and control slapd from another (interface
based) application, like an administration tool.

I deny this option by setting global event when starting slapd, so no more slapds
can start. :)

But there is one mayor problem, when I shutdown slapd (either with ExitProcess or
just clicking x-button on console) an exception sometimes occur. This means that
slapd doesnt shutdown in a normal way, dll:s are not notified about shutdown and
events and registry are not notified. I tried to debug why slapd gave exception
("memory at 0x....... could not be read") but ít was kinda hard to locate. Any
known bugs about this?
