ITS#5391 [Fwd: [Berkeley DB Announce] Berkeley DB - Patch Announcement]

I know you're not using BDB 4.6 with OpenLDAP 2.3, so this patch isn't 
strictly relevant to this ITS. It just raises the possibility that there is a 
BDB bug involved.

A patch for Berkeley DB release 4.6.21 that fixes a race condition between
checkpoint and DB->close() which can result in the checkpoint thread
self-deadlocking (SR [#15692]) is now available.  We recommend all users of
Berkeley DB apply this patch so as to avoid this issue in production.

An web page with all patches (currently only one) for Berkeley DB 4.6.21.
