Attach gdb to the running slapd, set breakpoints, then trigger the bug:

% gdb <path to slapd> <PID of running slapd>
(gdb) list mdb_node_add
(gdb) break 4952     <-- line number of 1st "return ENOSPC;" statement
(gdb) break 5355
(gdb) continue

(Use the correct source line numbers for your source tree.) Trigger the bug.
When gdb breaks:

(gdb) bt full

That's all.
