> background loads may [...] help provoke problems.

For what it's worth, my hammer_bsddb script that Tim mentioned, at


seems more often than not to provoke an application error when there's
background load, and a DBRunRecoveryError when there isn't.  I don't have
a source build of Python at the moment, but if no-one else can reproduce
the problem then I can check one out (SF permitting 8-) and try to find
out where it's crashing.

One minor correction to Tim's post: I'm on Plain Old Win98, not SE.
