There's no reason to try and close the database environment.
The way to think about this is that Berkeley DB absolutely has
to handle the case where the application doesn't close its
environment. So, there's no reason to close the environment,
it doesn't make any difference to the underlying DB engine.
Since it's possible the application might hang during the close
attempt, why bother?

Unfortunately, we can't post our development sources. I will
post snapshots as soon as I can.
