According to http://www.sleepycat.com/docs/api_c/env_set_cachesize.html:

"(All sizes are in powers-of-two, that is, 256KB is 2^32 not 256,000.)"

This doesn't make sense to me, 2^32 would be 4G, where 256kb is
actually 2^18 (at least NORMALLY). Isn't this a mistake? Should it
read, "256kb is 2^18 not 256000"?

If so, this needs to be corrected, as this is pretty critically wrong.

I suggest you mail sleepycat then. This is the OpenLDAP software list, not the sleepcat software list.
