I would guess the problem is that in the 3-2-x tree, I changed over
as many databases as possible to the DB_HASH format. The older
database is DB_BTREE. At one point after I did this, htfuzzy would
actually dump core(!?). This is why I make the suggestion in
upgrade.html that people do a fresh installation.
