This doesn't jibe with the Berkeley DB docs, though:


If we've made sure we're the only process accessing the DB
environment, it shouldn't matter. We should be able to let the
recovery process do whatever it pleases. If it doesn't work, then we
don't really understand what's happening.

I'd like to have a solid explanation for what's going before we start
flipping flags on and off based on what "works more often." These are
the repository's low-level mechanisms we're dealing with here; we
really should try to understand what we're doing.
