I had the same problem a while ago. The binary format of Berkeley DB
has changed.

You need to :
- dump your database (old format) in ascii form using db3_dump
- create your database in new format using db4.0_load

For this download libdb3-util, libdb4.0-util.

If your database is older try libdb2-util.

I believe that this problem is specific to BerkeleyDb.
