Ah, I've seen that kind of thing before and that would explain it.

I'm not deadly on the details, but is that pretty much the only way to
actually fix this? We have a common_pool in the loader that appears

to pass it down so the bdb cache can use that? Or is that pool
inappropriate for some reason?
