OpenLDAP 2.3 has not been supported for several years. Since it stopped
development, there have been hundreds, if not over a thousand, bug fixes
and improvements. Furthermore, I'm going to guess that you are running
RH's build of OpenLDAP 2.3, which was even further behind than the last
release of OpenLDAP 2.3. Given the information you provided, I would guess
that there is some bug in the version of BDB that OpenLDAP was linked to
that caused the error. I would note that at one point RH was linking
OpenLDAP against BDB version 4.3, despite the fact OpenLDAP's configure
script explicitly disabled such linking because BDB 4.3 was known to have
serious issues. If your 2.3 OpenLDAP is linked to BDB 4.3 that could well
be the cause of your issue.
Beyond that, trying to investigate any further is a waste of everyone's
time. Upgrade to a modern supported version of OpenLDAP, and build your
own packages, don't rely on distribution packages.
