Are you saying syncrepl is known to be broken? Or shoddy in general? I
find the whole issue that a "top level" of a tree can disappear, but the
tree itself still works to be troubling. Perhaps BerkeleyDB broken?

I'm saying that with delta-syncrepl, my replication experience has been reliable. From what I see on the list, people who use normal syncrepl do not have reliable replication.

I did look at delta-syncrepl, but it never ran very well, and seemed
quite over complicated for marginal gains. As I understood it, syncrepl
always sends entire records, whereas delta-syncrepl can update just the
attribute of a record. This did not sound like it would make any
difference. Is my understanding incorrect?

With delta-syncrepl, the changes are read directly out of a changes database, in order. The gains are significant.
