It sounds to me like you're hitting a bug related to critical vs
non-critical controls in 2.2
The situation got a bit messy but is now fixed in HEAD/2.3; I don't
recall the changes being ported into 2.2.
If you're going to keep using 2.2, you should make sure to leave the
Critical flag FALSE here.

I have (I believe) correctly implemented a Java (JNDI) search control
for the OpenLDAP Sync Replication control. When I use this to search my
OpenLDAP 2.2.15 (on RedHat 3 ES) OR 2.2.26 (Cygwin on WinXP) servers
(both with BDB) I get:
javax.naming.OperationNotSupportedException: [LDAP: error code 12 -
control unavailable in context]
I also notice when browsing either directory using Softerra's LDAP
Browser (quite nice if you've not used it) that I cannot see the Sync
Request Control (18.104.22.168.4.1.422.214.171.124.1) being offered under
Properties -> LDAP Settings -> Advanced. This dialog displays the
server controls available.
Did I need to compile something differently to see this control? Do I
need to set something differently? I have the sessionlog statement in
my slapd.conf and loaded my ldif using "slapadd -pw".
Yes, I've read both draft-zeilenga-ldup-sync-06.txt and section 14: LDAP
Sync Replication from the 2.2 users guide at openldap.org.
My understanding is that I SHOULD be able to code to this control as a
client application and that LDAP Sync Replication is generally
applicable to client-side syncronization for a variety of applications,
not just for OpenLDAP->OpenLDAP syncronization.
