The rpm database is a Berkeley DB and it too random leaves a __db.001, etc.
file hanging around. The underscore files have to be deleted and the rpm
command reran. It usually works the second go round and this problem is
rpm -i or -u, I think, does file locking the whole database. bohoutil does
as well I gather. Seems to me that if two programs (rpm and bogoutil)
exhibit the same occassional problem on just about every RH or FC distro,
the problem points to Berkeley.
Wonder how other distros store their package data and are they hit be the
