Oh, I think understand.  Let me try and restate it in my own words.
We essentially replaced glibc's db2 with the libdb2 for the
libdb.so.[23] sonames, but libdb2 is simply a different interface and
not actually a suitable drop-in replacement for glibc's db2.  

Is that right?  If so, what exactly is the fix?  It seems like we
should continue to try and have a libdb.so.[23] file that works.
