RE: BDB Database problem

There really isn't enough debug statements to see what the problem might be, but often during these unexpected crashes, the issue is related to the state of the database, which can easily be fixed with db_recover.  Be sure your ldap directory is stopped and run db_recover -h {path_to_db_files}.

If that still doesn't work, you'll have to run OpenLDAP with more debugging information (-d -1 for the most debugging info).  

OpenLDAP 2.3 does some sanity checks at start that make the db_recover unnecessary.  I'd recommend breaking away from the Red Hat compiled OpenLDAP (and its dependancies) in favor of compiling your own from scratch.  If you need a good guide, I'd recommend http://www.stanford.edu/services/directory/openldap/.
