I also think that it is unfortunate, but basically replication tests are 
tome based.

However, we *must* make those tests independant from the functional 
tests, otherwise we won't be able to do regression tests before committing.

OpenLDAP have a separate part where they do replication tests (the very 
same way : they are all time based).

We already shortly discussed with Kiran (well, discussing is a gross 
exgeration, we had a short IM interaction last week as a test was 
failing) and we agreed that we should define a specific profile (maven 
profile) to run replication tests.

IMO, this is the only possible path...

thoughts ?
