After upgrading rpm on a system from 4.0.2 to 4.4.1, I'm seeing this:

muny20:/lib# rpm -e --test sed
rpmdb: c_put: attempt to modify a read-only tree
error: db4 error(13) from dbcursor->c_put: Permission denied

error: db4 error(13) from dbcursor->c_put: Permission denied
error: Failed dependencies:
        sed is needed by (installed) console-tools-19990829-34.i386
        sed is needed by (installed) pam-0.74-22.i386
        /bin/sed is needed by (installed) initscripts-5.84-1.i386

It doesn't quite seem to stop rpm from working, but it's worrisome and I can't
quite find what it means.

Any clues?

Thanks,
Marc
