You should indeed be worried about the duplicate entries
(normally caused by indexing the database and updates
at the same time) as you'll never be certain which one is
retrieved. It is best to index them separately.

wrt the 64-bit thing on this same thread. Coincidentally
I'm working on this at the moment. The compilation flags
are not the only concern. There's ftell64's, ftello's
[and fseeks] and, of course, the indexing. That's not
even mentioning ajints and ajlongs :-)
