the more i read, the more confused I am getting. So I will try to put
my question as simple as I possibly can:

I am using openldap 2.1, and having set checkpoint to 5 in
slapd.conf. Do I have a garantee that at system crash, I will NOT
loose any data older than 5 minutes?

and if the above answer is true, then:

will I be able to recover the data (possibly) lost from the last 5
minutes operations by running db_recover?
