tested on oss 11.1 64bit:

1.) "normal" provision:
we ran into this error, but it seems to be more "cosmetic":

#> setup/provision --realm=ldap.local.site --domain=LDAP 
--adminpass=linux --server-role="domain controller" 
--slapd-path="/usr/local/libexec/slapd" --ldap-backend-type=openldap 

hdb_db_open: database 
db_open(/usr/local/s4-ol/private/ldap/db/schema/id2entry.bdb) failed: No 
such file or directory (2).
backend_startup_one: bi_db_open failed! (2)
slap_startup failed (test would succeed using the -u switch)
Failed to bind - LDAP client internal error: 
Failed to connect to 
Setting up share.ldb
Setting up secrets.ldb
<rest ok>

post-provision: start slapd,  fire up s4: everythings ok,
and the good news:
no crash any more when connecting with ldap-client (ldbsearch, 
ldapsearch, apache DS)

theres a small error, when detecting if another instance of slapd is 
already listening on our

Check for slapd Process with PID: 1888
 and terminate it manually.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup/provision", line 198, in <module>
  File "bin/python/samba/provision.py", line 1076, in provision
  File "bin/python/samba/provision.py", line 1317, in __init__
    raise("Warning: Another slapd Instance seems already running on this 
host, listening to " + ldapi_uri + ". Please shut it down before you 
continue. ")
NameError: global name 'ldapi_uri' is not defined

Changing the line (1317):

raise ("Warning: Another slapd Instance seems already running on this 
host, listening to " + ldapi_uri + ". Please shut it down before you 
continue. ")



gave me this error:

TypeError: exceptions must be classes or instances, not str

2.) "make gdbtest" (run in xterm, no crash) also seems to be ok:

( used:  "#> OPENLDAP_SLAPD=/usr/local/libexec/slapd TEST_LDAP=yes make 
gdbtest > /install/openldap-backend/gdb-trace.txt 2>&1",
file is attached)
