I should have pointed out in the log message that the changes will only
effect non-Outlook users.  I think that just about all (or all?) of the
corruption messages recently have been non-Outlook people.

I was also thinking that one other thing that we could maybe do would be to
catch the DBRunRecoveryError and print out our own message instead (so that
people stop asking for the recovery program).  Good idea?
