I noticed that test_anydbm and test_bsddb seemed to hang, so I -x'd them.
Later on while test_whichdb was running and I was off doing something else
(so didn't notice the delay), it eventually spewed this traceback:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/Users/skip/src/python/trunk/Lib/test/test_whichdb.py", line 49, in test_whichdb_name
f = mod.open(_fname, 'c')
File "/Users/skip/src/python/trunk/Lib/dbhash.py", line 16, in open
return bsddb.hashopen(file, flag, mode)
File "/Users/skip/src/python/trunk/Lib/bsddb/__init__.py", line 310, in hashopen
d.open(file, db.DB_HASH, flags, mode)
DBFileExistsError: (17, 'File exists -- __fop_file_setup: Retry limit (100) exceeded')
Looking at _bsddb.so I see it's linked against Berkeley DB 4.5. This is on
Mac OSX 10.4.11 using the MacPorts version of Berkeley DB (4.5.20). Have I
somehow strayed out of the support cocoon without realizing it? I wouldn't
have thought so, since the max version listed in setup.py is 4.6.
