From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.4.3)

in the utils documentation directory.

Fixed in db4-4.1.25-9 when built for RHEL3. Thanks for noticing.

This problem has been fixed but there are actually more similar bugs.
/usr/share/doc/db4-devel-4.1.25/index.html (from db4-devel) has links:

-- should be ../db4-java-4.1.25/api_java/c_index.html

-- should be ../db4-java-4.1.25/api_java/java_pindex.html

-- doesn't exist at all. I searched a little at sleepycat.com and found a
ref/toc.html file which should be /usr/share/doc/db4-devel-4.1.25/ref/toc.html.
I say, 'should be', it isn't there but the links on the on-line page point to
files with names exactly like those files in /usr/share/doc/db4-devel-4.1.25/ref

Link to this file (reftoc.html) is also present on each of
/usr/share/doc/db4-utils-4.1.25/utility/*, except for index.html.

Plus, the db4-java package contains the same problem as db4-utils. It has kind
of weird links like

a href="../../db4-devel-4.1.25/api_java/env_close.html"

which doesn't point to an existing file. Instead of db4-devel-4.1.25 there
should be db4-java-4.1.25. Or better, since all the files are in one directory,
the links could be like

a href="env_close.html"

These bad links, and also the reftoc.html issue, are present in
/usr/share/doc/db4-java-4.1.25/api_java/* . There may be even more bad links,
better try some link-checker.
