That is strange.  It must have something to do with the dbclean
estimate of the required hash table size.  Since you are using -N,
it must have something to do with your whitelists, including
both /var/dcc/whitelist and whitecommon or any other files included
in /var/dcc/whitelist.  Given a private copy of those files or
hints on their contents, I'll look at it.

`dbclean -dGS -s 1000000` would probably be a sufficent work-around.
