Can you start with something simplier? Like:

slapcat | grep -E '^dn:' | wc -l

Also, if you are not using the bdb backend, you have to stop slapd
before running slapcat.

If the above doesn't apply, another possibility would be that the server
received some write request while you were backing it up.
