I've looked into it, triaged the bugs around it (it affects subversion,
too), documented the ways to reproduce the bugs and attached patches for
hardy and gutsy-proposed.


Unfortunately, quite a lot of programs depend on libdb4.4 (and other
packages from db4.4), which I have not tested/looked into (see
"apt-cache rdepends libdb4.4").

I've documented everything I've found out at the above bug, you may want
to test the patch (see for
building fixed packages yourself).

Hope this helps. I'm not really sure about the fix, but it reverts
something from 8.1ubuntu2 - and the bug in Debian did something similar
from 8.1 to 9 - and reverted it in version 10 (IIRC).
