Hmmm ... there are four /var/lib/rpm/__db00x files (000 through 003).

I said "ps aux | grep rpm" and got back nothing, so can I assume nothing is using rpm? Should I just blow away those four __db00x files?

Oh, for Pete's sake ... What goes around, comes around, right? I've had to put up with "re-install Windows" as a cure for what ails ye for years, now you're telling me that Linux is tumbling down that same path? :-(
