Interesting, there are a 7 different bug fixes that deal with corruption along with a lot of other stuff:


They say November 2003 for the release date, hopefully this will end all of these problems.

 From the reading I have been doing on this list, this is a bdb bug that
has no known timeline for a fix.  Some people say it's avoidable by
setting a large cache size (big enough for your entire db) in your
DB_CONFIG file.  Others avoid the problem by using solaris.

List: Please correct me if I'm wrong, but that is the conclusion I have
come to dealing with this problem.

Anyone know exactly what is going wrong in bdb, are they aware of the bug?

I use solaris AND put everything into a cache. I believe BDB 4.2 is supposed to have fixes to the problem, but not having a proper cache size will still cause performance issues.
