And just hours after sending this, slapd hung.  This behavior's different than
what I had been seeing before: slapd hangs at 100% cpu usage, eventually refusing
new clients.

At loglevel 256, nothing of any use is revealed.  Is there some level I can safely
turn on to help debug this problem?  Will the upgrade to 2.3.17 help?

I'm using the default thread count and I noticed that at higher thread levels,
this CPU situation would happen sometimes within a couple of hours.  Should I go
even lower than 16, or is this another Linux-2.6 issue where I should consider
using 2.4 instead?
