Ok, well you should have really mentioned "using our own replication
technology", and since we have no way of knowing what this is or why you
are using it, we can't possibly help diagnose if this is having an effect
on slapd, other than what we have already discussed.

Why not use an open/rfc'd proven replication technology?
