away to think of the next problem due to a bug thats already fixed in
a newer version.
Thats the only point I was thinking of by saying that.
Not to mention that gdbm was never a safe DB mechanism, it has a lot of thread
safety issues. No matter what, sticking with it would be a mistake. And nobody
on the Project will support anything that old. We've already dropped support
for 2.3 now; if you're not on 2.4 by now then don't bother posting to these
