However, even when that matches it seems that sometimes a "deep inspection" (actually traversing the whole database and comparing each entry individually) of the directory shows differences even when the ContextCSN of the directory root matches.

Just out of interest (I'm just beginning to sort out nagios monitoring for this very thing) is this the same plugin as on http://ltb-project.org/wiki/documentation/nagios-plugins/check_ldap_syncrepl_status or is it a script you've created yourselves?
