gahhh!!!  I'm know I'm going to get flamed for this but *this*
kind of issue was exactly stability I voiced concerned over.

ok.  Based on that I'm going to pull ldb from 3.0.24.  We can
leave it in SAMBA_3_0 for now, but if necessary, I'll pull
it from there and go back to using Volker's original multi-index
tdb patch.
