>    Affects Versions: 0.9
>         Environment: Mac OS X 10.4.11
>            Reporter: Michael Hendricks

> If one accidentally tries to create a database when a database by that name already exists,
CouchDB trunk (tested at revision 691322) responds with a 500 status code.  In slightly older
versions of the trunk, the response code was 409 and the error message helpfully indicated
that a database by that name already exists.
> I'll attach a patch that restores the 409 code and error message.  I submitted this patch
to the developer's mailing list on August 23rd.  It appears not to have been noticed by the
core developers, so I'm re-posting it here.
