I downloaded bitcoin 0.5.2 yesterday replacing 0.5.0rc7 which I was using before. The blockchain updated as normal and I exited. Today, I tried opening bitcoin-qt from terminal and it showed the loading screen but it quickly disappeared and the following error was left in the terminal window:

Code:
ubuntu@ubuntu-desktop:~/$ bitcoin-qt


************************
EXCEPTION: 22DbRunRecoveryException       
DbEnv::open: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery       
bitcoin in Runaway exception       

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'DbRunRecoveryException'
  what():  DbEnv::open: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
Aborted
ubuntu@ubuntu-desktop:~/$


Now bitcoin will not start and neither will the headless daemon. I have a backup of my wallet. How do I fix this?

BTW I use Ubuntu 10.04

The block chain is the main innovation of Bitcoin. It is the first distributed timestamping system.

One of the databases(1) (either the block chain or the wallet) got corrupt.

Move the block chain data (addr.dat, blk0001.dat, blkindex.dat) into a temporary sub-directory so bitcoin-qt can't find them.
If any of those files were damaged, bitcoin-qt will now launch and start downloading the whole block chain from scratch.
If bitcoin-qt still fails, put the block chain files where they belong and deploy your backed-up wallet.

Notes:
(1) Actually, I should have said "At least one" but an event resulting in damage both to the block chain data and wallet is very unlikely.
