Thanks - no wonder I missed it, it's for the original UMich stuff not
OpenLDAP.  ;-)  (Okay, okay, I know one is derived from the other but it's
still an innocent mistake - you never know what things have been completely 
fixed and what hasn't..)

Which begs the question - why support NDBM at all?  Isn't it just begging for
trouble, given that many machines don't have GDBM or Berkeley DB installed so
will try NDBM first (as I did) as a quick means of getting a test server up
and running?

1.85, 1.86 or 2.x?  Thanks..
