You get this because dbz only handles one open dbz file (which is only
really a problem during expire). The only time innd should really care
is when its told to reload history (when the files gets swapped).

The only instance I can see where it might all go horribly wrong is if
hisv6_checkfiles declared the files changed, and then failed to reopen
the history files; but as far as I can see innd shouldn't be enabling
that code path anyway :(
