^Cslapd shutdown: waiting for 0 threads to terminate

I just spent a little time on a similar problem with a NetBSD 2.0 beta, an though I didn't get to a fix, here's what I found in case anything is interesting.

NetBSD 2.0 has a thread model (kernel activations?) that is probably
different than FreeBSD 5.1's, but they do have something in common -
no pthread_mutexattr_setpshared function. (Nor pthread_condattr_setpshared.)
That means that Berkeley DB 4.2.52 won't use the pthread mutex support, and
instead configures gcc/assembler roll-your-own mutexes. (That also happens
on Linux, probably all distributions.)

In my case, slapd stopped in __db_tas_mutex_lock, while trying to sync
some db file as part of the close.  I found this out by inserting debug
printfs.  gdb reported that it was in sched_yield(), a system call, but
didn't have a useful call traceback.

At this point, I got sidetracked when I wondered if db could be forced
to build with posix mutexes. (It will build, but restricts functionality.)
In the process, I happened to run db_recover on the database.

Now shutdown runs to completion, even though I've issued a few queries.
So I'm not going to close in on what exactly hangs up __db_tas_mutex_lock,
because the problem is no longer reproducible. I pass the baton to you.

Except this does the same thing without bdb. With ldbm in it's place, it's the problem is still present.

No modifications to the config files, all plain vanilla out-of-the-box configs. I've tried with BDB and LDBM. Same issue with both types of databases. All openldap server versions i have tried exhibit the same problem (this output is from 2.1.29. Output is identicle on all versions, with the exception of the Berkeley DB version in the -d 256 output):

If I start slapd and kill it without issuing a transaction to the server, slapd will die gracefully, no problem:

ps: kvm_getprocs: No such process
Starting slapd.
su-2.05b# ps xa|grep slap

If I start slapd and issue a transaction to the server, slapd will NOT die gracefully. I need to kill -9 it which will do bad things to the database. kill -INT will not work either:

I've been struggling with this since my first post regarding this issue on March 7th and I still haven't figured it out. I'm asking anyone who may have some experience with OpenLDAP to PLEASE help me sort this out. This has really got me by the balls...
