So I am guessing I have something set that is not committing these

What would cause this?

You should allow slapd to finish write operations. Depending on the
number of entries, server load, hardware, location of database and
logfiles, database configuration and so on, that may take a few

This is nonsense. back-bdb is transactional; writes are guaranteed to have completed before slapd returns a response to a client request.

But there were some nasty back-bdb caching bugs in 2.1.22. It's not a good idea to spend any time on an old release when the changelog from back then to the current one is so long.
