I thought that between 4.1 and 4.0, 4.1 was the only one that worked on OSX.
If it's the case that DB 4.1 doesn't work on OSX either, should we throw up
the warning flags about 4.1 in general? Perhaps in the FAQ? The reason I
ask is because we've seen more and more cases of this popping up. I must
have responded to 4 or 5 in the last week or so.
