Hi Julien,

We used innd with this patch for two month, or so, but moved to ovdb, 
because we have slow disks and expiration process took too much time. It 
seems working, because I didn't find any signs of wrap over unexpected 
This fix is rather simple, but I'm not sure whether it is valuable or 
not. May be it is worth to leave this feature untouched and recommend 
buffindexed method for small servers?

Best regards,
