Actually, the fact that the transaction numbers are distinctly different
has been quite helpful in some cases, because it means that you can
identify the filesystem from the error message. (I'm thinking mostly of
user reports that say "I got this error message when I'm running an FSFS
repository on NFS", and it's clearly a BDB transaction id).
