I'm running fedora core 3, openldap-2.2.24 from source with db4-4.2.52-6
from rpm.  I can't seem to find out what if any patches are applied to
that db4 rpm and I'm seeing the same problems with my back-dbd that
others are commenting on.

After a power outage today the db was corrupt and db_verify and
db_recover did not work ( I don't have the output for that ).  I flushed
the data queue and slapadd' the data back in, ran slapindex and before I
started the server wanted to see what a db_verify would look like.

db_verify id2entry.bdb
db_verify: Page 1: out-of-order key at entry 37
db_verify: Page 1: out-of-order key at entry 74
db_verify: DB->verify: id2entry.bdb: DB_VERIFY_BAD: Database
verification failed
This is not an error for OpenLDAP 2.1-2.2. db_verify does not work because we used a custom sort function in the database. The custom sort functions were removed in OpenLDAP 2.3 to avoid this warning, but the message is meaningless in 2.1-2.2.

I guess this needs to go into the FAQ since it has come up a number of times on the list in the past couple days.

Better still - "this message means you need to upgrade to OpenLDAP 2.3..."
