I posted it some time ago, you can search for a thread with "stall" or
"stalls" in the topic. If I remember well, at least another person was
having the same problem (BTW it was not corruption but deadlock).

As I said, I was using a precompiled RPM and the BDB in use was 4.2.
Looking at the BDB website I saw two patches for the last version at
that time, but I didn't manage to determine if these were applied in my
installed libraries.

Another relevant aspect of my problem is that I used that installation
for months until I hit the problem, which only was evident when
committing *lots* of files (i.e the probability of it happening with few
files is much smaller, not nil). Any Mandrake user with a default
installation could have this problem and not be aware of it (that's
another reason I posted my test script).
