bad bsddb key/values on large data

I'm trying to build a bsddb hash database for an
application, where it will be read-only.

Actually, the app will use three similar databases.
All appeared to be writen OK -- no errors -- and the
two smaller ones of around 50 megs each are correct.

The largest one, about 200 megs, is written, and can
be read, and the strings are correctly formatted --
but the values attached to the keys are wrong -- as if
values were overwritten when the hash gets large. In
searching on Google and the mailing list, I saw one
parenthetical remark about problems on large files,
but I cannot find anything that directly addresses
this problem. 

Can anyone tell me if there is such a Python problem
or a bsddb problem?
