30* New member in the gdbm_recovery structure: duplicate_keys.
31
32Upon return from gdbm_recover, this member holds the number of keys
33that were not recovered, because the same key has already been stored
34in the database. The actual number of stored keys is thus
35recovered_keys - duplicate_keys.
