Great, two mistakes in one. Don't use back-ldbm. Don't use BDB 4.3.

I would rather stay with the version packaged with my distribution if
there is no known issue with it.

There are many known issues with it.

I have no control over the master-server, but as far as i know it also
uses an openldap 2.2.x.

I'm running an openldap 2.2.23 replica on a debian 3.1 (sarge) system.
Once in a while the index gets damaged and I have to use slapreindex to
get authentication working again.

The master server is running on fedora core (I don't know the version).

Is there anything I can do about this problem?
Well, I've never seen that behavior, and your report is kind of vague on
the details.  But I'd certainly recommend using a current version of
OpenLDAP (2.3.28 is the current release).  Or at least use 2.2.30, which
was the final 2.2 release.

What version of BDB is your replica using? 4.2? 4.3?
Howard reminded me to ask... What database backend are you using?  LDBM?
