Well... ours is 35x as big (at least the dump files are), and we have no
problems with FSFS (we were running BDB for one and a half years IIRC and
switched to FSFS about two months ago, I think).

I found both to be stable, although FSFS _seems_ to cause less trouble (BDB
wedging). If you have no problem with BDB so far then I'd stick to the old
saying: "Never touch a running system" (without a pressing need).
