If you're using an early version of OpenLDAP 2.1 (say before 2.1.26,
2.1.30 is the latest stable) with BDB 4.1 or 2.2 (say before 2.2.13,
IIRC 2.2.27 is the latest stable) with BDB 4.2.52 your DB will very
quickly become corrupt on crashes, or just spontaneously - especially
BDB 4.1.

You might want to update your OpenLDAP version.
