I haven't checked the absolute latest version, but I'd suggest that a
sentence or two be added to the replica section of slapd.conf.5 and/or
the slurpd.8.  The sentence ought to make it quite clear that slurpd
will only go live on the replica host(s) defined in the first database
where replicas are defined and you'll have to add a line to your init 
script to start any replication defined in subsequent databases.

Thanks for your reply!
