I have not tried modrdn.

Very early in my testing I thought I was seeing unbounded growth by performing endless deletes (and re-adds).  That, I found out through your much-appreciated responses to this list, was causing an explosion in tombstone entries and thus the server was exploding in actual data requirements.

We don't actually place much importance on that use case because we hardly ever delete an entry, so the housekeeping process for tombstones is more than ample for that cleanup.

The ldapmodify use case is critical to us however, because we perform large quantities of ldapmodify operations every day.

This memory growth situation I have described here applies specifically and only to endless ldapmodify operations.
