Yes. It does not replicate (with "constraint violation error") only because
by default it tries to replicate the lastmod attributes, which are operational.

If you configure the master with "lastmod off" it works:

=== master ==========
database        ldbm
lastmod         off
suffix          "dc=home,dc=net"
rootdn          "cn=LDAP,dc=home,dc=net"
rootpw          XXX
directory       /var/ldap/master
replica         host=localhost:9998
replogfile      /var/ldap/master/slapd.replog
=== end of master ======

=== "almost" slave ======
database        ldbm
suffix          "dc=home,dc=net"
rootdn          "cn=Replicator,dc=home,dc=net"
rootpw          XXX
directory       /var/ldap/slave

# turn off any write access ...
=== end of "almost" slave ==

Of course, I'm not saying this is a clean solution,
nor I suggest it. Since slapd replicates using the ldap
protocol, you should always be able to get a slave
replicated by any server, as you said in your previous
