2.3.31 is the latest (by tarballs available, and tags) that I can see ... and 
here I was just about to build new packages with patches for the most recent 
3 post-2.3.31 ITSs ...

Of course, there could be other reasons for the problems the user is having.

E.g., this could be ldbm data integrity problems (just switching to bdb should 
fix that). Upgrading to 2.3.x with ldbm may not have any benefit ...

Patrick, it may be best giving some details of your database backend, and any 
configuration you have for it (e.g. checkpoint and use or not of a DB_CONFIG 
file in the case of bdb). If you're not sure, the relevant bits of your 
slapd.conf would be useful.
