Hey Volker,

Just trying to understand.  From what I see the patch defines
two max values for freelist and hash chains and simply verifies
that the two tdb values don't increase beyond that.  Right?
I don't spend a lot of time in tdb, so I'm curious if I my
analysis of the patch is correct.

How likely is your comment, "...but it also might render some valid
tdb's as invalid."?

cheers, jerry
