Will try to see if I can break the index tomorrow :-) As for why
configure undefines HAVE_BERKELEY_DB_THREAD the reason is the test
for Berkeley DB thread support. The test code might simply have 
failed because the flag DB_THREAD failed. All other operations are
normal open/close/appinit and I can't see how that could have failed
The other flags used were DB_CREATE | DB_INIT_CDB | DB_INIT_MPOOL |
