I'm trying to stabilize our openldap server farm before going live and

This is most prominent when we are testing our population routine and
we need to remove all accounts before starting. right now it's only
about 22000 entries (It will get much larger).

During the mass delete we got the following sprinkled throughout the
logs on all machines:
Nov 15 15:47:16 idm-prod-ldap-2 slapd[33070]: bdb(dc=domain,dc=name):
previous transaction deadlock return not resolved

Wow. I've never seen this error message before. What version of OpenLDAP and
BerkeleyDB are you using?

FreeBSD 8.2 with openldap 2.4.26, however like I mentioned before,
right now I think we are squeezing ram right now Part of this
deployment was to discover how much ram we needed on the virtual
machine and it was started pretty low.

Oh and we are using bdb 4.6 right now (forgot to answer that)

Running out of memory would cause an obvious error message ("no memory") so that's not likely to be the problem here. Might be worth upgrading to at least BDB 4.8, but again, never having seen BDB spit out that error before, that's just a guess.
