alock is an autorecovery mechanism introduced in the OpenLDAP 2.3 release to assist with autorecovery. Given more information on the error messages coming from alock would be useful, since it is supposed to help you recover from hard reboots gracefully.

BTW, I'm using openldap 2.3.21 on freebsd and linux boxes. I use it with bdb43. On all machines I have easy reproduceble problem -- if slapd killing hardly he can't start. Eat all cpu, don't answer to clients and can be killed only with -9 signal. After running db_recover slapd start and work fine. I look in ChangeLog. This issue not fixed in 2.3.2[23], or I'm wrong?

BDB 4.3 is a known problem release. The suggested BDB release is 4.2.52+patches, and possible BDB 4.4.20+patches. But not BDB 4.3.anything.
