Thread died in Berkeley DB library

You try to run yum and see "Thread died in Berkeley DB library" along with a load of other scary error stuff... To fix it just run this:

rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*

Now you can run yum and all should work. You may want to do the usual yum housekeeping as well for good measure.
