I have the same problem (also on Digitial Unix) and asked the same
question a while ago. I was told that the problem is with "ndbm" and
that I should try the GNU "gdbm" or the Berkeley "db" package instead
(see the ranked list of backends in the documentation).

I have not had the time to try this yet, so if you succeed or run into
other problems I would like hear from you.
