Thanks for the rapid reply.

That sounds familiar. Just a clarification... what is the actual source of
the problem? Is it the version of the backend, how 2.0.21 uses the backend,
how 2.0.21 uses gdbm in the backend, etc?
As I sort of understand things, the problem is how 2.0.21 uses gdbm. I
_think_ that it's been fixed in a newer version of the server, but I recall
you (or whomever it was) saying something like "that version uses ldbm just
fine and ldbm is a much better backend anyway". Is this correct?

Yeah, I imagined that I'd have to do that if I changed the backend. Thanks
for the various "heads-ups" for the process, though!
