The DB isn't corrupted --- it's fine. But since Berkeley DB uses its
own locks, not some kernel-provided mechanism, there's no way to
ensure that when a process exits unexpectedly, its locks are
released. The next process comes in, finds the dead process's locks,
and politely waits for something that will never happen.
