This doesn't directly answer your question, but I'm surprised that an
LDAP server would max CPU usage if indexes and such are set up
properly.  Did you make sure to enable all of the recommended LDAP
indexes (in particular, sambaSID)?  (See chapter 2 of the Samba HOWTO
Collection for a sample OpenLDAP slapd.conf file that lists
recommended indexes.)
