Check up on how often your data is set to sync to disk. The slapd-bdb
man page is useful: look particularly at 'checkpoint' and 'dbnosync'.
You may also need to read the Berkeley DB reference guide.

There is a trade-off between data security and performance, so you
have some chioces to make.

This may also help Eli Elhadad with the win32 crash problem.
