How is this relevant?

Upgrading to 2.2.26 won't fix this problem (although it is still a good
idea for other reasons).
Eric, you should ensure that database recovery is run at startup,
otherwise you may lose transactions which are in the transaction log files.
On some distributions this is done for you for each database by default,
on others you need to enable it (check the init script if necessary), on
others you have to take care of this yourself.
You would run:
db_recover -h /var/lib/ldap
However, ensure that you use the right version of db_recover (that
matches the Berkeley DB version your OpenLDAP is built against). On the
distributions that include support for database recovery at startup,
they will know which db_recover to use anyway ...
