ldif2ldbm should not be used to load new entries.  It
should only be used to load LDIF created by ldbmcat of
entries previously loaded by ldapadd(1).  See archives
for discussions on this.

Just because there is data in the DB, doesn't mean the DB is
usable by slapd.

Which means the input to ldif2ldbm was not pristine.

Yes.  ldapadd(1) is more forgiving.

As far as ldapadd(1) taking all day, see the archives and faq
for hints on how to do speed up ldapadd(1) bulk loading.
