please use the attached mmr_syncrepl.conf (or check the old one) ;
i  left a hidden <tabulator> on the last line , wich will produce an 
config-file error when starting slapd.

another important point: please use the two several loops i made, one 
for the serverid-count,
one for the rid-count of the syncrepl-blocks.
although the serverids and rids are unique, its not the way to handle it.
the serverids should use a straight count form 1-n,
and the rids too. serverids and rids can use the same count (from 1) as 
they are handled
seperately during replication.
a straight serverid and rid count will make the config file more easy to 
read and understand,
and will be relevant in particular when debugging replication
issues, so please change it back to the originally intended form (2 
loops, both counting from 1).
