But, I still have problems with restore speed on my databases on current 
OpenLDAP on current platforms.

Specifically, OpenLDAP 2.3 and 2.4 can both do imports of a ~ 300 000 entry 
database in under an hour, but only on RHEL4. On RHEL5 (everything else 
identical), both 2.3 and 2.4 are about 6 times slower. I'm not sure if we have 
results for RHEL6 yet ...

Under an hour for a restore is fine. Over 4 is unacceptable.
