That is not what was happening to my server. I have carefully rechecked my 
coded LDAP queries, and all search criteria are valid attributes. The 
"(?=undefined)" error would happen when slapd memory jumped to over 150 MB 
and CPU usage to 99-100%. The log would show that message repeating until 
I did a kill -9 on the process. Other queries would get through but much 
more slowly because the server kept looping on that "(?=undefined)" error.

mine. The message and the resource usage spike always happened
