It would be great if you could try whether you're still getting this  
error with trunk:


HOWEVER, note that the upgrade process isn't exactly trivial  
(including a change to the database file format, so you'll need to  
dump and load your data) and not well documented at the moment. Your  
best bet would be to join us on IRC (#couchdb on freenode) and ask  
questions as they arise. Hopefully someone will be able to write up an  
upgrading guide soon :P

Anyway, please file a bug report including the full error report:


Other helpful information includes the size of your database and the  
number of views you have.
