Hey, Mats. Thanks for reminding me that I was supposed to send this
same report out last week *blush*. Indeed, the problem is still not


We desperately need someone to create a small well-written program
that exhibits this problem on Win9x -- something that mimics the
way we use Berkeley DB in libsvn_fs (with DB_ENV stuff and all those

This program should be as small as possible, and beautifully commented
-- in other words, I'd like to be able to send this little program in
a mail to Berkeley DB's support folk so that *they* can reproduce the
problem. I've sent mail to them in the past about the bug, but there
was no way they were going to dive into a codebase of our size to find
this bug.

The results of this operation will be, I hope, either a bug fix from
Sleepycat, or someone there saying, "Well, duh, of course it doesn't
work -- you (did/didn't do) _______________!"

Any takers?
