Well it has nothing to do with Berkeley DB, but …

… if the attached patch to add the namespace comparison
is "fixing", then the error message is hiding the fact
that some namespace is matching the conflict unexpectedly

Good: there is a fix. I thought this had been patched already?
Were there other locations that needed to include the namespace

The actual namespace and the intended semantic should be identified also:
PLD is doing something different than other distros.

Nothing wrong with different than other distros at all: I am
trying to understand what is needed before bug claims start.
