Great! :) I have it working now. Thanks for the help. Installing Berkeley DB
4.1.25 and the BerkeleyDB Perl module was not so much of a hassle as I
thought it would be. I also installed a new DB_File, and voila, everything
is working again. And I just remembered, that for my Milter, also in Perl
using DB_File, I had actually compiled its own, thread-enabled perl,
complete with its own environment. So, I do not even have to make any
alterations there. :)

One question, though. What is this I hear about the SummaryDB eating near 1G
of memory? :( That does not sound good. I expect to process/add ca. 5,000
entries a day. Any idea how long the SummaryDB will last me, before it
starts growing in the hundreds of megs?
