Really?  I have one master, two slaves.  There are two replica sections in
the slapd.conf, and only one replogfile.  There is only one slurpd
running, and it services all slaves (I used to have 3 slave servers).  Has
something changed where I can expect this scenario not to work?

I had troubles with this one.  I ended up with circular stuff, where it
gave me "partial results", or something to that effect.  Is there a
difference between modification referrals and others?
