Yes, there seem to be an inordinate number of invalid tuples coming back
from the db. My problem was that dropping a database died and wouldn't
finish. Dan thinks these are glibc 2.1 related problems. I wasn't able
to get a satisfactory resolution unfortunately. I tried 6.3.2, 6.4.2
(with and with out features) plus SRPMS and RPMS from ydl and LinuxPPC-R5
to no avail.
