No intended change in rpm-5.4.0. The indexes to create are same list.
You likely need Filepaths as well as Basenames.
(but I am getting ready to haul out a butt load of trash).
rpm-5.3.7 is likelier to be a bit more stable than 5.4.0 -> 5.4.1
as I try to get -fopenmp multi-threading in place (mostly there but
there's definitely a couple of modestly serious races).
Meanwhile -vv, and try --rpmdbdebug. Have you converted to "RPM ACID"?
The simplest way to convert (that I know of) is build from cvs
That will give you tests/newdb "RPM ACID" database for use with --dbpath.
There's some tests/Makefile.am targets like
make -C tests IDMS/solve
that limit the number of tags iirc (I'm traveling atm and so can't check
properly ... lemme look tomorrow).
