So, in summary, what I've done is to rebuild openldap to use both pth and gdbm instead of linuxthreads and db2, and I've rebuilt my databases. (or, more accurately, I'm going to be rebuilding the databases on all my servers through the rest of the day by hand because I'm kinda scared of trying to automate this since all my automation stuff tends to rely on ldap working.
