Whoops - to clarify: You may lose the _last_ one or two commits, until
they get flushed to disk. The one in progress, and maybe the last
successful commit. Not just any random commit:-)
You can set up checkpointing to limit how long the last successful
commit can be endangered. ...unless I read the code wrong. The
manpage says "checkpoint" is only needed with "dbnosync". Hmm.
