Re: (ITS#5661) contextCSN gets corrupted on the stand by mirror

Yes, but I would like to bring a precision :
under VI the 4 bytes are handled as 2 characters only. In fact each time 
the problem occurs I repair my database using a BDB C program wich reads 
the first key from id2entry.bdb and writes it on disk.
Then I use vi to fix the contextCSN, before writing the key back to the 
Using vi I do not delete any characters. I only replace them by 20, then 
I fix the rest of the fields.

Another precision : when the first two chars take corrupted, the rest of 
the contextCSN gets stuck and does not follow write operations.

The contextCSN with sid=0 is there because at the beginning I initiated 
my directory without SID (defaults to 0), then I set two difrent SIDs 
for A and B.
