I did some basic testing (details on the Mandriva bug report), and the tools
leave the database in a bad state, but slapd itself does not. Running recovery
(e.g. between slapcat's) works. slapd startup will also recover the db.

IMHO, OpenLDAP issue. Note, all tests pass with these binaries (and must have
during the build anyway for the packages to have made it through the build
system), but none of the tests test whether the tools will mess up a db ...

The same package that was used for 2.4.11, which did not have *any* problems.

It has 22.214.171.124, but not the 126.96.36.199 patch (188.8.131.52 is irrelevant of

build_asmmutex defaults to 0, so it's actually:
--enable-shared --enable-static --enable-rpc --enable-cxx --with-

Which would improve performance, but really shouldn't prevent slap tools from
closing the database uncleanly.

I will enable the internal library copy option on a build of my OpenLDAP
package, and build against both 4.6 and 4.7 ... but I suspect it will persist.
