What Paul said is 100% correct.  Specifically, you will see this error 
after the compaction has completed and while couchdb is attempting to 
swap the old and new databases.  If you can ensure no updates are being 
made during the compact process, you could probably compact (getting the 
error you reported), stop couchdb, delete the old DB and rename the 
compacted one, then restart couch.
