When you converted to FSFS, did you also upgrade to trunk?

I'm wondering if your bug is related to the r13193 fix Eric Gillespie
just committed for FSFS. A similar fix still needs to be made for the
BDB back end, and if you'd be willing to test it when that happens,
that would be great.

See r13193 for details; and see the thread that led up to it:
