Don't do that. :) Remember, for example, that slapadd -q is doing a very minimal protected BDB environment which fully expects nothing else to be touching it. You can use db_stat commands to query the progress of the load.

Knowing that I would have expected slapcat to fail/crash.
But I wouldn't expect slapadd to crash to - being the first to open the BDB environment. If any slapadd can be crashed by any user/shell executing slapcat (with write perms to the dir), then it can be difficult to protect an long running (hours) slapadd from being crashed by accident.
