With 2.6.20-rc2-git1, which contain this patch, I have no more Berkeley
DB corruption with Klibido.
I'm afraid a lot of software project switched to Sqlite, from BDB,
because the bug this patch fix (ie. http://bogofilter.sourceforge.net/).
I've also thought, since years, it was an userland problem.

Ciao,
