Note that the latest release in the 2.3 series was 2.3.43.

CHANGES in CVS branch OPENLDAP_REL_ENG_2_3 even mentions "2.3.44
Engineering" with a fix. If you go through CHANGES you will see many
syncrepl-related fixes mentioned after 2.3.27. So you definitely should
use a more recent version. (Yes, we all know the arguments for using the
distro packages. This has been discussed before...)

Well, dropping the whole DB resetting all passwords is weird anyway. Why
are you doing replication at all. I'd have a look at this sync
implementation. It can't be too hard to understand it if you have the
source or at least have access to the data model of the source database.

Ciao, Michael.
