grr. DB crashing.

So... Berkeley DB is crashing on me. (wah!)

When the FS gets cleaned up at pool-destruction time, it goes to close the
"nodes" table. Inside DB, it destroys a list of cursors. Something down in
libc barfs when one of those cursors is free'd.


libc's free() function has a pthread mutex in it, which it tries to lock. It
is that lock which bombs. Annoying.

I've built a debugging version of DB, but that isn't helping right now. It
doesn't say much more since the issue is in libc. It doesn't appear to be a
multiple free, but it doesn't look like it would adequately test that, so
I'll add some testing code into DB for that.

Hmm. Gonna have to do some more work, I guess. Anybody else seeing this?

This has me stuck...

Off to bed now.
