Re: back-bdb quirk?

Pierangelo, increasing BDB_IDL_DB_SIZE worked in your case ?

buf[BDB_IDL_DB_SIZE] of bdb_idl_insert_key can overflow while running
Although I'm also not 100% sure whether increasing BDB_IDL_DB_SIZE directly
solves the problem,
we seem to need a better management of IDL in memory.

I've been out for a few days, and I had no chance to investigate or even
with HEAD code; I'm afraid I can't work on that until Saturday. All I
found is
that the problem seems to be all confined in db4, so, unless it is (was)
triggered by improper usage earlier in back-bdb, it sounds a bit
difficult to
investigate (I haven't studied anything of the internals of db4 yet).
It sounds like exausting cursor resources, but I'm quite unfamiliar with
topic, sorry.
