Shouldn't openldap default to checkpointing at a minimum of once a day or so - if no checkpoint value is given in the config file? If a checkpoint value is given, then that overrides the default.

I got hit once by this too, when we moved from ldbm to bdb... Suddenly when a kill -9 occurred on slapd (which was quite common for a while, as our server would never shut down properly without hanging) I discovered that it was tossing out any changes that had been made.

I think I saw a commit like this for OL 2.3.0 go by a few weeks ago.

than ever in the present religio-political climate. They often focus on
fantasy and sf books, which foster that deadly enemy to bigotry and blind
faith, the imagination." -- Ursula K. Le Guin
