Hmm, it's not clear from the db4 documentation exactly which error db4
is going to return when this happens. If we could trap exactly that
error, then appending a line like

        EFOO may also indicate you need more locks in the db;
        see <url> for info

to the error output would at least prevent the user from giving up in
despair!

Cheers,
