I go this error and now I can't get any of my db stuff work properly.  I 
get an error whenever I try to approve postings.

Sorry that I don't have a gootanswer but backup your data now while its 
still stable and try running check_perms -f you may luck out with a 
permissions problem.

The error you have is what I had, then I got a "bad marshal data" error, so 
far nothing I have found has fixed that one.
