Forgot to mention something I'm not sure is an issue, but should be
checked: how resistant is CouchDB against inaccessible _users or
_replicator? It seems like even _users might at some point be in an
unsupported on-disk version. I run all of my couches in Admin Party
mode so I never even look at the _users database, but it probably
wouldn't work all that well.
