Re: Outstanding issues between 2.0.7 and Linux?

We upgraded from 1.2.11 to 2.0.7 (both threaded) on RH6.1 and changed our
backend from GDBM to BerkeleyDB3.1 at the same time.  A benchmark query
(ldapsearch memberofgroup=cn=All Staff,ou=Groups,o=MyOrg, c=US) shows
execution time jumps dramatically:

1.2.11(gdbm):              1:20.06 elapsed
2.0.7 (berkeley3.1):    7:55.60 elapsed

Same server, same client, same indexes.  I haven't tested 2.0.7 with a gdbm

What could be the explanation?
