I am not sure if this is your problem but have you tried running the
bdb utilities to recover from a corrupted database. I believe the
command is db_recover. We have had to do this a few times in the past.

It's clear from his error log that such actions will be useless. His transaction log is clearly missing a large amount of data. The BDB transaction support can't help you if your hardware fails to preserve the transaction log data.
