Good suggestion, but it didn't help.  However, I did a google search, 
and found that there is a problem with the latest redhat build of 
db4!  db4-utils-4.0.14-20 will not work, and will produce the errors 
I reported.  While the suggested fix is to patch and build it from 
the sources, I simply reverted back to the earlier 
db4-utils-4.0.14-14 version, and the errors went away.  One problem 
always leads to another, sigh.  Thanks.
