Phil, Mike: Please correct me if I'm wrong.

We will put 4.2.52 back in as legacy lib in bdb4. If you could update  
your package
to 4.7 that would be great as we generally want to reducy dependency  
to old libs.

We thought so. However, I am not 100% sure any more.

Ok, agreed. So again: everybody please be extra careful on upgrades  
from current
as the berkeley db issues have not been fully cleaned. It will  
unfortunately take
some more time to reorganize things again.
