I tried to reproduce the problem on either OpenSUSE 11.1 or Fedora but I could
not reproduce the crash.
The crash was reproducable with OpenPKG though I guess the crash depends on
the version of bdb beeing used. The code fetches an transaction from an
internal table which might have slightly different semantics with regards to
initialization depending on bdb version.
Anyway if you look at the rather trivial patch you will see that it indeed
solves a problem independent of bdb version used so the code does not depend
on a side effect anymore.
On one hand the void pointer *data should not be dangeling and therefore
initialization with NULL is correct.
On the other hand TXN_ABORT() must not be called with potentially dangeling
pointers and therefor a trivial check for the validitiy of the pointer is a
