I've rebuilt the overview (what causes 5 hours downtime unfortunately) and

So, what is the condition when this "ovaddrec could not get new
block" shows up? When buffers are filling up to a half of their

What is the problem with fixing this bug? Just no time for that or a
code analisys yet to be done or there is some principal problem with
buffindexed method?
