Yes, it seems that they at least changed something in the DBC structure. The "locker" attribute is now of the type DB_LOCKER (a new structure) instead of an u_int32_t as it was in older revisions.

Yeah, this will be a bit of a pain, since slapadd relied on being able to get the locker ID out of the cursor structure, and several places relied on being able to explicitly set the locker ID in the cursor. Very annoying; they should have just completely done away with the integer locker IDs and just used the DB_LOCKER pointers everywhere. As it is now, we still need the integers for the public lock APIs but they're all converted to pointers in the internal APIs anyway...

which means someone (guessing Howard) needs to see what has changed to make it so that OpenLDAP works with it.
