bsddb module woes

We've just had a forced upgrade from redhat 6.2 to redhat 7.1, and the bsddb 
module won't open our (very important) db files any more.

Python 2.1 (#1, Aug 29 2001, 11:53:30) 
[GCC 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.1 2.96-81)] on linux2
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import bsddb
>>> bsddb.btopen('nodes.issue', 'r')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
bsddb.error: (-30990, 'Unknown error 4294936306')

I am guessing that this has something to do with the library that's been 
linked in. I've had to manually compile python 2.1 on the system, and all 
seemed to go fine.

[root at dirk lib.linux-i686-2.1]# ldd => /lib/ (0x4000b000) => /lib/i686/ (0x40084000)
	/lib/ => /lib/ (0x2aaaa000)

Any ideas? More information required?
