I have run the full regression test of BDB 3.4.28 (run_all), which
took several days to finish and I got five regressions, which all of
them were these: 'overflow returned error value 1'. So I would guess
that BDB should be and is working here. Specifically all mutex and
lock tests worked. I have also also tried to run BDB with following
mutexes: 'POSIX/pthreads/library', 'x86/gcc-assembly' without any
difference regarding ra_dav 'activity not found' errors.

BR, Jani
