Ok, just to give you a status of our problems:
After fixing a few (!) memory leaks (two in our own back-ends,
one in slapd (ava.c -- see ITS #614) and another one in the
'recode' library (stable-v3.5), our slapd now answers up to
a few million requests without any crashes or hangs. I currently
limited the number of threads for our testing to 10.
The memory consumption of slapd seems no longer to grow (even
if YAMD still reports memory leaks -- YAMD seems to have
trouble profiling slapd, maybe because of the multi-threading).
So, that doesn't look bad :-)

If I understood Mark right, there will be knobs in the near
