Concerning OpenLDAP 2.3.43, I didn't see anything about contextCSN not being updated on a master in the changelog of OPENLDAP_REL_ENG_2_3, I am therefore not sure that it would solve the problem anyway.
Please, if anyone thinks that I have missed something there, don't hesitate !

True, but then it will be "easier" to switch to 2.3.32. The idea, is to use 2.3.32 as a slave for a while and the switch it to master and get rid of OpenLDAP 2.3.11.

Wrong, different teams are taking part of the whole process, and testing a product is'nt only a question of unit testing ! Anyway, this was not my point at all, thanks for carring.
