When all that would have been required was:

# db_recover -h /var/lib/ldap

You may rather wonder why RH/Fedora packages are consistently problematic ...

Upgrade to 2.3.x, I don't have packages for FC4 like I do for RHEL4, but you 
may consider trying to rebuild them, which will give you a painless parallel 
installation with the 2.2.x shipped in the distro (or, convince me to install 
an FC4 build chroot).
