Have you tried running your test program with strace?

I hadn't done anything with that application in over a year, so I did not have any way to narrow it down.
As it happens, I had a sudden rush of brains to the head and read the ewarn message that comes out

when you compile gdbm, to the effect that 32-bit systems may have to rebuild, etc, etc.

Now all I have to do is discover why an ewarn wasn't emailed to me -- I thought I had that set up.
