Actually, the database "log" got corrupted. Even the "db-recover" would
not correct it. Luckily, I had a semi-recent backup of the directory. I
had to run  "/usr/local/libexec/slapd" via "GDB" to find out what the
problem was. I have no idea what caused the corruption though. The only
thing that comes to mind is that I DID NOT shut down openldap prior to
updating it. That never caused a problem before though.
