I'm not an expert on OpenLDAP but nobody has responded so I thought
I'd share what I've learned.

If a server is a syncrepl slave you can't directly make changes (i.e.
it is read only).  I had similar problems with entries not getting
synced.  I'm using multi-master mode so I was able to fix it by doing
it manually.

One thing you could try is running slapd with "-c rid=$RID" where $RID
is the syncrepl rid.  This forces a complete resync so make sure to
not to leave it in your start scripts or you'll be resyncing
everything you restart the server.
