I'll add an entry to the FAQ - something like
"Why am I getting DB_PAGE_NOTFOUND messages?"
You have a problem with your BerkeleyDB database. There are two likely
causes: either you've hit a max size limit or the database is corrupt.
Mail delivery agents, like postfix, have a file size limit. When
bogofilter's database reaches that limit problems occur. Command "ls
-lh /your/path/wordlist.db" will show the database size. Command
"postconf | grep mailbox_size_limit" will show the postfix setting.
Use "postconf -e mailbox_size_limit=73000000" to set it to 73MB (or
whatever size is right for you).
If you think your database may be corrupt, read the "How can I tell if
my wordlists are corrupted?" FAQ entry.
