Description Jan Safranek 2008-07-10 08:55:06 UTC
Description of problem:
We shop openldap-servers with it's own version of Berkeley DB. Currently we ship
ver. db-4.4.20, with two official patches. Upstream released additional two
patches, improving the stability of the database.

We should apply these patches to prevent database corruption. See
http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/berkeley-db/db/update/4.4.20/patch.4.4.20.html
for description - we ship the first two, I'd like to add the later ones.

There is no reproducer. The database gets corrupted in very specific conditions
only - see the patch description.
