My recollection is that Sander Striker was having discussions with
sleepycat folk, and that some deep issue was revealed. In almost all
of these cases, a berkeley db table had switched 'type' for some
reason; the sleepycat people revealed that this might happen if
recovery is happening whilst something else changes the db. (Is this
accurate, Sander?)
