Yeah, I had a look; even slapd.conf has changed.

On the way home, I thought I figured out why the test works and real-life 
fails (I get my best ideas on the train).  The test suite does the 
deletion as part of "ldapmodify" along with other operations, so I 
reproduced that.

And...  no, still no propagation of deletions beyond the middle stage, so 
whatever I'm doing is subtly different from the test suite.

And not worth pursuing...  In the time I've spent so far, I could've 
merely changed the replication agreements (and no, I'm not complaining) 
but I figured I'd further the bounds of knowledge and all that.

I'll see if I can get my boss(es) to agree to that, as it's still Beta, 
and you've already indicated that SLURP may be phased out in favour of 
SyncRepl in 2.3.

Thanks for your input.
