I'd guess this is a result of the Avalon upgrade.  The new file repositories
in Avalon affix a Reposity[number] suffix, where [number] is based on the
order in your conf file.  So if file://var/mail/inbox in the 6th repository
in your conf file, the stream files will be named

The problem this creates is that if you change a file repository to a db
repository (any non-file repository), Avalon will number the remaining file
repositories differently.  So for example, file://var/mail/inbox might be
now the 4th repository, so it won't see
4329874928374.Repository6.StreamStore because its looking for

Between the Excalibur code not pooling db connections and these file
repository changes, I'm thinking we should just copy that code into the
James project and make it stable the way we need it to be.  Continue to use
the rest of Avalon, but this code that is largely out of our control is
slowing releases.
