Not sure whether it matters or not, but your DB_CONFIG's set_cachesize
looks very small, about 50MB.  Are the same DB_CONFIG settings used for
all databases?  What database, of the 3 defined in your slapd.conf, is
suffering from this problem?  Are critical searches related to indexed
attrs?  Can you reproduce the problem with recent releases (e.g. 2.4.19)?

Also, I note that only in the first database you define an equality index
on objectClass.  This is instrumental for decent performances of slapd, as
documented in slapd-bdb(5) (the presence index on objectClass is
