The easy way to erase everything is
  1. stop slapd

Not necessarily. It depends on how you've configured your DB_CONFIG file.

For example, if you are wise, you put your BDB transaction logs on a different disk or partition. Those are unlikely to be in that path. Also, if you are using shared memory segments, it is wise to delete those as well (man ipcs, ipcrm).
