Re: Strange behaviour on FreeBSD 3.s STABLE

And I have the seem behaviour on IBM AIX.
1) Ensure you compiled Berkeley DB 2.7.5 with the right thread options
(-DUSE_THREAD or something similar depending on your architecture and C
compiler, and possibly another crt),
2) If it doesn't help, try compiling slapd without threads and tell me if
you can still see it grow ,
3) If you do, you have a starting point to look for leaks ;-)
