What platform, what version, 32 or 64 bit? What git commit ID? If you revert 
the code to an older commit, does it produce the same result?

I've slapcat'd a 5 million entry back-hdb database and loaded it into 
back-mdb. Then slapcat'd that result; it is exactly identical to the original. 
Using both RE24 pulled a couple minutes ago, and git master built November 
1st. There have been no functional changes to the code in a while, purely 
cosmetic changes.
