This is usually a result of the database chaining during the read, or  
in between calling enquire and get_mset (at least thats when I get it).

I usually (in perl) eval around it in a loop and retry a few times  
with reopen each time, but I index new items several times each  
minute, so I guess I'm getting the exception more often than some  
other use cases should :)
