It's one of those things I've come to just accept about my world, like

No objection. This problem has dogged the BDB back end for a long time.

If we want to get even more radical, we could do away with the concept
of trails completely, instead passing the FS, pool, and db_txn
parameters explicitly to each function. The trail's "undo" field could
be replaced with pool cleanups.
