Applied, thanks for the patch. --verifydb /was/ working the last I 
checked but... Should add a testcase for it (it's such an oddball case 
that it tends to break by sneezing at it), or actually the more 
attractive option would be kicking the rather useless lowlevel BDB 
verify out and replace it with something that actually does a meaningful 
sanity-check of the rpmdb (index validity etc).
