Also, I don't see the point of using ReiserFS for the filesystem holding
your LDAP data ... no small files (which is where ReiserFS would excel),
and any possible performance difference is certainly not worth the
peculiarities of reiserfs (IIRC flushing semantics differ, which could
be causing some of your problems). You would be better off using a
reliable FS and tuning your server correctly (and doing things like
setting logging via syslog to be asynchronous).

Strictly speaking, I don't see the point in using a journaling file system for a journaling database: ext2 should be just fine. But I'm neither a database expert nor a file system expert.
