Description David Relson 2005-04-27 11:45:14 UTC
As bogofilter's lead developer I happened to have a DB_CONFIG file in the
directory when I ran "make rpm".  This causes 'rpm -qf' to fail.  rpm shouldn't
be looking in my current directory for DB_CONFIG!

[relson@osage tmp]$ rpm -q rpm

[relson@osage tmp]$ rpm -qf /bin/bash

[relson@osage tmp]$ echo set_flags DB_LOG_AUTOREMOVE > DB_CONFIG

[relson@osage tmp]$ rpm -qf /bin/bash
error: cannot open Basenames index using db3 - Invalid argument (22)
error: cannot open Providename index using db3 - Invalid argument (22)
file /bin/bash is not owned by any package

### notice that creating DB_CONFIG in /tmp causes 'rpm -qf' to fail

This is configuration functionality, not a bug, provided by Berkeley DB.

"Don't do that." is the best answer.
