Why don't you take my advice serious? If you continue to ignore specific
hints nobody will bother to answer your questions in the future.

It's my strong belief that when using Open Source software one should
take care of economical aspects of the developer's and other volunteers'
spare time. So in general it's bad practice to report bugs of older
release again when these might have already been fixed in a newer
release. It's the user's obligation to prove that a bug still persists
in a recent release (or even preferrably in a recent CVS checkout).

Before making any assumptions one should look into file CHANGES of a
recent source release. For your particular issue have a look at these lines:

OpenLDAP 2.4.16 Release (2009/04/05)
        Fixed slapd syncrepl newCookie sync messages (ITS#5972)
        Fixed slapd syncrepl hang during shutdown (ITS#6011)
        Fixed slapd syncrepl too many MMR messages (ITS#6020)
        Fixed slapd syncrepl skipped entries with MMR (ITS#5988)

Ciao, Michael.
