Hello again,

So after wasting my time here I finally realized that apparently
boltdb is archived upstream. It will not receive any fixes.

Apparently golang-github-coreos-bbolt is a maintained feature-extended
fork. We should likely encurage moving to that and get boltdb removed
from debian.

The timeout waiting for db.mmaplock that occurred in boltdb is
apparently already fixed in bbolt, see:

The pagesize issue seems to plague them both still though.

See https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=976926
for the bug report against bbolt.
