well, in your case it's likely to be the problem with the OpenLDAP
server, not Samba.
I have almost 30 Samba + OpenLDAP servers and they are 100% reliable.
Generally, OpenLDAP shouldn't get corrupted, either you use bdb or ldbm
or any other backend.
You are running one of the first OpenLDAP from the 2.2.x branch.
First thing I'd do in your case would be to upgrade to either 2.2.28, or
If the problem persists, go and ask on OpenLDAP mailing lists.
