Hmm. The sentence describes a situation that shouldn't be possible
right? That's why the file must be corrupted. The error message is
telling you why the system determined that something is wrong.

I'd be interested in looking at the database to try to figure out how this
happened. If you are willing to pursue this, write me back in a private

The recover program in 2.2 will remove damaged transactions from a database
file. While this may cause data loss, you can at least get your database up and
running again.  This seems pretty useful to me. This program isn't
mentioned in the README.txt.

See the script in lib/python/ZODB/  You run this script with the
name of the file to repair. Note that the repair is made in-place, so you will
need to work on a copy or shut your site down.

I can't tell from the information you've provided why you would get an error in
your browser.

Your database got corrupted. I don't know why. It's possible that it's due 
to a bug. It's also possible that it's due to a system failure. I don't
have enough information to tell right now.

As long as your database is under 2GB, size should not be a problem. has been close to 2GB on a number of occasions without problem.

The data file is definiately corrupted. That's what the error tracsbeack says.
It's a "FileStorage.CorruptedTransactionError".  The question is how the file
got that way.
