Please attach a pointer to a tarball of your database
	cd /var/lib
	tar czvf /tmp/rpmdb.tar.gz
and I'll take a look. Thanks.

OK, record #662 is damaged. I'll attach a toy program to delete an
entry from a Berkeley DB, edit 662 into the top, compile with
        cc -o t38454 t38454.c -ldb-3.1
(from memory, unchecked, see bugzilla #38454), run the progem, and
then do a --rebuilddb -vv to recreate the inverted lists.

Meanwhile, yet another assertion has been removed from header.c, I
should have a version of rpm that ignores bad records on ftp.rpm.org
Real Soon, will then move on to insturmenting the record deletion.

Off to #38454
