FYI, regarding this damaged JDBM database, we have identified two issues atm :
- there is a race condition when stopping the server which occurs from
time to time ( https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1047),
but I'm not 100% sure it has impact on the database
- As we are using a differed write system for entries, which default
to 15s between each flush, you may get a damaged database if the
server is brutally stopped (Kill -9, for instance)

Perhaps he can also enable sync on write for the partition.
