No database in this setup.

There was an additional problem with my Perl DB_File throwing an error about
a unmatched symbol in on iteration of the several versions of stuff I've
tried to work around this with. Reinstalling the db package on the system
ended that error. I reinstalled the DB_File package after that, too. Before
the db re-install I reinstalled all the other Perl modules on the system,
with no improvement; but maybe I should try that yet again in case something
else is downstream of db? 

I think it was something that would have been loaded on startup that
changed, since the segfaults showed up immediately on restarting the system,
but anything I'd upgraded would have been some many days before. Hope I can
find a fix soon - the spam's just pouring in meanwhile.

You think there's something I should downgrade?
