2.3 to 2.2, and then switch to sync-repl as quick as you can (as you're really 
wasting your time with chasing slurpd problems sync-repl avoids).

Are you replicating multiple databases ? This can result in additional 
headaches with slurpd on 2.3 ... and you may actually prefer to migrate to 
sync-repl with proxying to the slaves (to expedite dumping slurpd).
