Given that slapadd is single-threaded, I doubt it is thread related.

Anyways, if slapd is segfaulting, you should update to 2.0.17,
retest, and if it crashes again, report a bug.  Be sure to
provide a stack back trace.

See the ITS list for reported problems.  Most, I think, are
fixed in 2.0.17.  Still awaiting feedback.
