By the way, I hope that the concurrency issues that I found don't
exist in fs_base, but I'm not familiar enough with BDB
transactionality to know if that's the case. Has the fs_base code
been reviewed for the same concurrency issues? I assume that BDB
would be in better shape here because it's all one type of DB.
