version: 2.1.29
os: fedora core 2
backend: bdb

Those overloaded situations come once in every several days. There
would be about 10-20 queries per second, but I do not even see slapd
in TOP. syslogd is eating everything.

Another problem is that openldap stops to find records in those cases.
It says that the record was not found, instead of giving an error. Is
that expected?

Since you are on linux, I suggest setting syslog to asynchronously log the data. I'll note that OpenLDAP 2.1 is deprecated, and it is possible that the issue you are seeing has been fixed in subsequent releases.
