No, it doesn't matter (as long as the great unwashed cannot read it) but
my impression was that you happened to pick the same file for slapd
("replogfile") as used by slurpd.  Where is slurpd's operating
directory?  It's where you'll find slurpd.status etc.

I think that's what's happening, yes, but you didn't say where slurpd's
directory was (specified by -t, or defaulting somewhere).

The symptoms you reported seem to be consistent with slapd writing the
file, slurpd chiming in and truncating it then rewriting it to its own
file, which being the same file as slapd uses caused it to happen all
over again, and again...
