Right. Don't put Berkeley DBs into AFS. But we've been doing this with RPM 
databases for years (making sure there's no concurrent access), and at 
least with linux clients we never had any problems. Something is different 
here. And 1.4.7pre3 seems to detect something 1.4.6 doesn't, although the 
results are the same.
