Drawbacks of Berkeley DB cache settings?

I'm wondering if anyone on the list is familiar with the "inner-workings" of the BDB, specifically my question is: Does enlarging the cache of the BDB via DB_CONFIG pose any danger of updates to the directory being lost in the event of a powerfailure or crash? I ask because I've managed to greatly improve the results from OpenLDAP by making some fairly large cache settings and I'm wondering if BDB has some mechanism to prevent corruption in the event of a crash (with a large un-processed write buffer).
