seems as though you have to fix samba segfaulting issue and slapd issue
first before you can think about fixing slow Access issue.

samba is very stable daemon when properly installed & configured

openldap is very stable daemon when properly installed & configured

I haven't a clue on where you might have deviated in
installation/configuration processes on either samba or openldap that
might be causing your issues and you might want to use debian resources
to help you troubleshoot them.
