It is definitely a requirement of our BDB integration that a given
process only attempt to hold open a single connection to the Berkeley DB
environment at a time, and it is the DB_REGISTER subsystem which
enforces that. I assume that what's happening is that your process
opens the original repository, copies the repository (which carries with
it the db.register file), and then upon trying to open the copied
repository runs into problems because BDB sees the PID in the
db.register file already. If this is the case, the solution should
simply be to ensure that you don't have the original repository open at
the time you copy it.
