BDB Locking problem

Im running this rather large database. I am getting the
sched_yield()                           = 0
error with openldap 2.1.12., bsb-4.1.x, RH7.3

I thought this bug was fixed?? I guess not.

I read something where you need to increase the maximum number of locks
for the bdb database but how do you set it in the slapd file?

It was working fine before i axed the 2Gig swapfile I had set up with the
same configuration file. ... Is this automatically configuring itself on
how much RAM you have available or something along those lines? The
machine has a 1G swap partition but only 256M of ram so the 2G swap file
made it look like it had 3G available.
