Will do.  I had found some old notes about doing a 'slapd -d 1' to start
in debugging mode or something and I had done that, but it has been at the
'slapd starting' line ever since.  I'll give it 15 minutes or so while I
read up on the man page and see what it says.  I am guessing this is the
same place it hangs while actually rebooting the server.

Hopefully I can get this going today so everyone can get back to work. :)

Thanks again.
