Your dbm file holding the database is corrupt.  Dbm's are odd beasts -
unix filesystems let you seek long distances into a file and write
without allocating the intermediate space so for fast access you
hash the database key to a number and seek that far into the file
to store it (collision logic omitted...).  Your best bet is to
restore a from backup or rebuild from the ldif if you exported one
recently.
