Indeed, and that's why you need to look for other sources of instability
on the system. The code doesn't just "randomly" fail. You need to understand
what is going on. Blindly down-revving is a receipe for disaster. The format
of many internal tdb databases are changed when up-reving. Unless you saved
them off and restored them you're likely to run into more trouble.

You need to understand your system a *lot* better than you currently do.
