per the bug report (but line 94 not 98) changing the following works:

/usr/lib/python2.7/whichdb.py
line 94
- if magic == 0x13579ace:
+ if magic in (0x13579ace, 0x13579acd, 0x13579acf):

The daily of 2012-04-11 has the following:

if magic == (0x13579ace, 0x13579acd, 0x13579acf):

That doesn't work -- yields an exception.

On the other hand:

if magic in (0x13579ace, 0x13579acd, 0x13579acf):

still works
