Most likely because you are:
1)Running an older version of OpenLDAP (anything before 2.3.x) that does not

2)not manually running database recovery whenever slapd might not have 
shutdown cleanly (eg in the start case of the init script).

Fix one of these two issues, and you should be ok.

I note that this issue affects other software that uses Berkeley DB with 
transactions (jabber2's "db" driver for one).
