Thanks! I see both programs on the system and I will try this
later today and look into filing a report. Thanks!

At least in the case where slapd is unexpectedly exiting, you can install 
gdb on your system. Find the pid of slapd on your system, then run gdb, 
then "attach <PID>" at the gdb prompt. gdb will then tell you if slapd is 
catching a signal (which seems to be your working hypothesis). There are 
some basic instructions on generating a usable stack trace in the OpenLDAP 

If gdb reports that you are indeed seg faulting, it might be worth 
installing valgrind and seeing if that produces anything enlightening. 
Feel free to discuss your progress here, but you should formally report 
any issues you find via the ITS.
