interesting - I thought multi master was declared dead and impossible to
implement with OpenLDAP... The main problem I had with slurpd was
stopping it replicating twice if there were two replica directives,
however, I dont have my old configs to provide details.

syncrepl seems to work apart from the entryUUID problem. I've posted on
a different thread about that. It is 100% reproducible so if I dont hear
from anyone in the next day or so I will file a bug report on ITS.
