OK, I looked in the wrong directory. Now I have found many changelog
entries, starting with number 152926 and ending with 155512 (ldapsearch
states 2588 numEntries). Should that be that much?

The oldest is about two days and an half old and it does not change
within the last few minutes.

As it seems my trimming is broken, at least partially. Is there
something I can adjust?

On every reboot I got these messages. I do not get them during normal

Something odd I observed after the last two reboots: ns-slapd runs my
hard disk for several minutes (about 15 minutes) after the reboot. This
is the time it takes to log all these change record messages.
