Hmmm. Okay. How about the following: Open the tdb file using
open(2) as normal user and then as needed open the tdb file
using tdb_open as root if the open(2) succeeded on demand.
If anyone closes the handle you would have to tdb_close the
root-opened tdb file as well because fcntl locks would be
lost. But an on-demand re-open would solve this.
