Yeah, we had various mysterious problems with berkdb a while back.   
Googling suggest "try this or that magic flag", at which point we  
switched to GDBM & have never looked back.  To be honest, I've not  
heard of anyone who *hasn't* had serious problems with berkleydb in a  
non-trivial use case (best known example being Subversion).
