[Python-Dev] bsddb3 test errors - are these expected?

I just tried running regrtest with "-uall,-largefile" (after a "cvs up",
"./config.status --recheck", and "make") on my Mac OS X system.  It chugged
for awhile, then spit this out several times:

    Exception in thread reader 4:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/Users/skip/src/python/head/dist/src/Lib/threading.py", line 411, in __bootstrap
      File "/Users/skip/src/python/head/dist/src/Lib/threading.py", line 399, in run
        self.__target(*self.__args, **self.__kwargs)
      File "/Users/skip/src/python/head/dist/src/Lib/bsddb/test/test_thread.py", line 270, in reade
        rec = c.first()
    DBLockDeadlockError: (-30995, 'DB_LOCK_DEADLOCK: Locker killed to resolve a deadlock')

once for each thread, then this:

    /Users/skip/src/python/head/dist/src/Lib/bsddb/dbutils.py:67: RuntimeWarning: DB_INCOMPLETE: Ca
    che flush was unable to complete
      return function(*_args, **_kwargs)

After chugging awhile longer, it segfaulted.

What (if anything) can I do to provide useful inputs to someone who can
possibly fix the problem?
