This depends on your requirements. If you don't need syncrepl and
proxyauthentication by back-ldap nor any overlays, and if you don't
care about any vulnerabilities, and if you want to stick with
BerkeleyDB 4.2.52, I would say 2.2.18 is rock stable, at least on my
systems, otherwise I would go for 2.2.23.
