Comment 2 Panu Matilainen 2009-03-18 14:35:20 UTC
Blindly blasting away the environment (including the locks it might hold) is not at all the right thing to do.

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2009-03-27 12:18:46 UTC
Testing the return code DB_VERSION_MISMATCH and automating
the recommended action, removal of the dbenv file, is hardly
"blinding blasting away the environment".

But YMMV, have fun!
