Hard to tell since this bug isn't easily reproducable. As said: I can't easily
test on the system in question because of strict operational and privacy

Hmm, this might be a hint into the right direction. Could be that this system
was running 2.4.26 at that time and fix for ITS#6983 appears in CHANGES as of
2.4.27. Definitely there were subtree renames triggered at that time.

If it's the IDL cache would it be helpful to throw away the shared mem files?

Yes, I listened to Howard's presentation on back-mdb and of course I highly
appreciate this work.

I'm not in the position to propose changing the backend soon on this customer
