So, are you running BDB 4.2 with or without the patches that
sleepycat says you must use to use BDB 4.2?

I would have to investigate that. We're running the Debian packaged version 4.2.52-18. I'm guessing possibly not.

The version of BDB in Debian is currently 4.2.52-24. BDB 4.2.52-18 is part of Sarge. Sarge ships with OpenLDAP 2.2.23, which is a very old release of OpenLDAP, and there were some bugs fixed with checkpointing and open transactions *after* that release. So that may be the issue you are hitting. Are you *sure* you are running OpenLDAP 2.3.32 on those boxes? Because that wouldn't have been provided by the basic Sarge release. In fact, even in etch, the latest release is OpenLDAP 2.3.30 (with a few patches backported).
