So you want:

RewriteMap mydbm default:/path/to/dbm

???  That doesn't make a lot of sense to me.  The map type needs to
indicate that it's a dbm somehow.  I was saying that "dbm" should get
translated into "default" by mod_rewrite, meaning that the following:

RewriteMap mydbm dbm:/path/to/dbm

would be the default DBM type, as opposed to:

RewriteMap mydbm sdbm:/path/to/dbm
RewriteMap mydbm gdbm:/path/to/dbm
RewriteMap mydbm db:/path/to/dbm

which would be one of the specific types.
