You should probably bear in mind that the problem was judged by the
OpenLDAP maintainers to be sufficiently severe that they removed db4.3
from their supported db version list in the latest release of OpenLDAP.
That's a bit more than FUD, although I agree that it's not specifics.

I agree that it's unclear at the moment whether the problem is unique to
OpenLDAP or whether other applications would encounter the same problem.
