Over on the spambayes-dev mailing list, Richie Hindle presents a program
that makes bsddb3 go insane:


He was on Win98SE.  I got the same "corrupted database" symptom several
times on Win2K using the same program, but never the "illegal instruction"

This throws multiple threads at a Berkely hash DB.  It's clear as snot
whether that's supported.  Contrary to a followup msg, it looks like the
Python hashopen() call *always* forces the DB_THREAD flag into the mix, so
the absence of DB_THREAD probably isn't the problem.
