	Of course; LibO should never crash.

	Certainly; of course, if it is intermittent - it could well be memory
corruption related; if you can bear the 50-fold performance hit -
running under valgrind would be time well spent; ensure you:
export G_SLICE=always # first though. That may well give you accurate
data for the real bug; how well it works with java-ness is unclear

	Very good of you to continue chasing it; and of course much of the
database stuff is -really- hard to get setup and/or test meaningfully. I
keep hoping for Wols to finish the sqlite backend and to get that
integrated, so we can do some fast/native unit tests for database bits.
