I have a problem with slurpd exiting in case of unexpected results:

My setup consist of one master LDAP server and one slave server plus one
additional replica per server (custom app listening for LDAP changes --

As far as I can see from the code, slurpd starts a thread for each replica, and
when all those threads exit, slurpd exists. If slurpd receives unexpected an
response from a replica or the connection is torn down while a transaction is in
progress, the replica thread fails and replication for that node is dead until
slurpd is restarted. Once this has happened for all replicas, slurpd exits:

Is there any way to get around this? I'd like slurpd to just try to reconnect if
something went wrong. Please contact me if you need additional information.
