Re: slapd-bdb cachesize

Does this mean that all versions of Openldap prior to what is currently in HEAD has this memory leak? I.e., does 2.1.14 have this leak? Will a 2.1.16 release be imminent?

Thanks for your answer.

I really would like to try the patched version immediately if it fixes
the memory leak, but there's one more problem:

We use 'ldaptcl' to fill and maintain the database and this tcl extension
only compiles against the 2.1.12 stable version, because some functions
like "ldap_uncache_entry" (in fact the whole caching stuff) is not in
libldap.a in the newer versions anymore (I tried with 2.1.15). Will there
be a working ldaptcl for > 2.1.12, too?

But meanwhile I'll try to use your malloc-debugger on our 2.1.12-version,
too. Maybe I can give you more some information, soon. Thanks for the

Best regards
