What may I do wrong? Any sugesstions?

RHEL/CentOS db4-4.3 has proven unreliable for use with OpenLDAP Software. You will have to use a version of BerkeleyDB that is not provided by those vendors. One option is of course to roll your own packages. However, many RHEL/CentOS users on the list base off of Buchan Milne's RPMs. There is some (occasionally hard-learned) institutional knowledge in his build process that you would likely benefit from. You can find references/links to these in the openldap-technical/openldap-software list archives.
