I cannot believe tthe numbers for the ldapmodify.
Did you actually measure them ?

I just tested the modification of the description attribute on 20.000
inetorgPerson objects (with about 25 attributes each) on an 
800MHz AMD Duron with 512 MB RAM:
It took not more than 12 min and 30 sec.

The update was done using a Perl script based on Net::LDAP,
slapd and the client script were running on the same host.
During the update the system was running the KDE GUI and 
was used for web browsing and a few ldap searches on exactly
the same LDBM backend (I wanted to know how fast the update 
worked before it ended ;-),

And no, the description attribute is not indexed.
