I would guess that with one of them, the data is not being forced out to
the database.  I would look over the database options in slapd.conf.  Or
you may wish to try a db_recover after reboot, in case the database was

I assume you are running OpenLDAP 2.0.  You probably want to investigate
upgrading to a supported version of Redhat (if you are sticking with
redhat), or switch to another distribution.

I'll also note that OpenLDAP 2.0 is dead, and that BDB 4.1.x had some
serious problems.  You may wish to look at upgrading to OpenLDAP 2.2, and
BDB 4.2.x (with patches if applicable).
