slapd refuses to die


I am running openldap 2.1.22 on a redhat 8 box with replication turn on.  sometimes when i tried to stop slapd by doing: kill -HUP <pid>, the slapd refuses to die.  I ended up having to do kill -9.  Unfortunately when i do kill -9, the bdb database sometime gets corrupted in the process.

Any reason why a normal kill -HUP doesn't work consistently?  I did verifed that there are no other clients apps using the slapd before I tired to kill it.  I would like to avoid kill -9 since I have corrupted the bdb before.
