(ITS#7108) syncrepl loses updates when replica is down

This is a followup to ITS 7037 which has been fixed in 2.4.28.
It is the same setup and test -- I've uploaded a "patch" that
includes the test program (sorry if it doesn't follow all
the OpenLDAP conventions, I hope it is sufficient to reproduce
the problem).

It looks like some changes to the OpenLDAP master are not transferred to the
replica (the test prg demonstrates that).

Note: in my test runs it doesn't always fail, but almost all the time.

Please let me know whether my test is broken or whether there is a problem in

this is the failure output from running
./run syncrepl-ldap
in the tests/ directory:
