That seems like a reasonable solution to delete the old deleted objects 
(which I don't think we need anyway), Andrew Bartlett was suggesting in 
https://lists.samba.org/archive/samba/2014-October/186439.html that the 
error harmless, though.

Is the Deleted Objects error even relevant to the DsReplicaSync failed 

I'm happy to let the deleted objects expire naturally if we can just 
make replication work
