Signal 6 is SIGABRT, no? I'd guess that slapd is assert()ing something.
There should be something about that in the logs or stderr or such. You
also should be able to coerce a core dump out of such a situation.
I note that the "uid 389" many times leads to a file permission error creating the core file -- check your OS configuration carefully that it's a place writable to the dying slapd.

Good point, I'll bet that was it and it couldn't write the core file because of permissions. I didn't even think of that.

I sure wish I new what was causing it so I could reproduce it instead of waiting a month for it to happen again.

Thanks for the tip.
