OK. We'll have a go but we don't hold out much hope. The default build
seems to have everything hard wired under /usr/local but surprisingly
the dbs still go to one of /var/lib/ctdb, /var/ctdb
or /var/lib/lib/ctdb. All three are written to if they exist.
No one seems to know much about this. There too many words like,
'probably', 'seems' and 'maybe' for our liking. I'm sure something will
click soon. Your fruit harvesting method seems as good a bet as any:)
Open Source documentation at its very best.
