I thought the gdbm files were only affected by endianness, but
I've also encountered gdbm files not working when moved from one computer
to another even when both were the same endianness and using the same
version of gdbm (this was between linux on x86 and freebsd on x86).

I'm not sure quite what the problem is, unfortunately.
