That's a very annoying error message I've got rutinely.

It is due a change of versions and branches in bitcoin client and bitcoind.

It is related to a stupid incompatibility in different versions of same library (I don't know in this moment).

* Solution 1: delete all stuff related to databases (with "db" in name and/or extension) in your ~/.bitcoin directory and restart the client/daemon.

* Solution 2: delete all stuff except wallet.dat and bitcoin.conf in your ~/.bitcoin directory and restart the client/daemon. If you see your balance is down don't panic. You must wait some hours to reload the whole block chain.

Proposals for improving bitcoin are like asses: everybody has one
