Some weeks ago I upgraded my Ubuntu system to saucy, however at that time there was still no bitcoin package for saucy available from ppa, so I decided to install bitcoin-qt (0.8.5-1) from universe (which depends on libdb5.1++) instead.

I thought that builds linked against libdb4.8 wouldn't even be able to read wallets created by builds linked against libdb5.1

Quote from: build-unix.md
Ubuntu precise has packages for libdb5.1-dev and libdb5.1++-dev, but using these will break binary wallet compatibility, and is not recommended.

but the bitcoin-qt (0.8.5-1) [universe] generated wallet seems to be readable by both bitcoin-qt_0.8.5-saucy1 (ppa) and official bitcoin-0.8.5-win32.

Is the above warning still true? Am I missing something?

Thanks
