Are other processes on the box dog slow too? If not,
I'd say leave that alone - mucking with timeslices is a good way to make
a box horribly unresponsive. 'non-interactive' here I think means batch
processing rather than multi-user setups.

I run slapd on mini-itx boxes with C3 CPUs (600 and 800 Mhz) and 
they are couple of orders of magnitude faster than the  stats you posted,
so your slapd (or bdb) is just horribly broken. It would make sense to 
do a clean build from source, from the latest stable versions of each.
