compiled OpenLDAP 2.1.16 with after configuring it with --enable-slp
and found slpad registering its services at the SLP DA on startup and 
deregistering them on shutdown without problems.
The only thing required that this setup works is that you have slpd running
on the machine that openldap is running on.
It does not matter if slpd is configured as SA only or as DA, but it must be 
running the whole time slapd runs.
