Thanks Max, you're a star, I've sent you a link off-list.

Is it just me, or do there seem to be a lot of "my db is corrupted" wails coming from us mac os x users? there's a concurrent thread with mine from Pejvan BEIGUI who is using the same system as me but with svn installed via fink rather than darwin ports as i used. I dug a lot of info out of old threads that, as far as i remember, also tended to be mac os x users.

is this an os thing? or is it more likely to be the rather peculiar conjunction of versions and patches used by the various package/port systems?

anyway, i'm concerned. fsfs here i come...
