Hi all,

We seem to have a problem with our Berkeley database. When we restart 
the queue master, it spits out the following error message:

10/14/2008 08:25:10|qmaster|eddie04|E|error unpacking object with key 
"USER:lhcb015": invalid input parameter

and then fails to load a large number (though not all) of our user 
objects - which we than have to re-create with a script.

We've tried deleting this user object from the system, but it had no 
effect. I'm guessing that there is a corrupt entry in the database - is 
there any simple way to repair it?

Many thanks,
