of, after not seeing them...well, almost ever in production.) It's all 
just a bit too perfect a storm for my taste...but I'd obviously defer to 
you when it comes to bdb internals.

With that in mind, I might as well see through your theory. I'll play with 
a second box tomorrow and see if I can reproduce fresh.
