Sorry, did not send reply to the mailinglist....

Do you write the transaction log files synchronously to disk, i.e. you don't 
use "set_flags DB_TXN_NOSYNC"  in your DB_CONFIG? Do you also checkpoint the 
database on a regular interval? What manual steps do you perform when slapd 
is crashed? Slapd does not do automatic recovery in OpenLDAP 2.1.23.
It might help if you provide your slapd.conf and DB_CONFIG to this 
B.t.w. it is also useful to give some logging or gdb output to see why your 
slapd is actually crashing......
