You're using DB 4.1, and this looks to me like the classic inexplicable
bug whereby a table "changes type" suddenly. I know that MaxB and
cmpilato have been able to repair this tweak manually... so perhaps you
can post an archive of your repository for us to look at.

We spent months trying to figure out why this happens. Then db 4.2 came
out, which was faster and didn't have the bug, so we've started
recommending that version instead.
