820 * Fix for replication problems where the write queues can get backed up if the
821 writes aren't happening fast enough to keep up with the reads. For a large
822 replication, this can exhaust memory and crash, or slow down the machine
823 dramatically. The fix keeps only one document in the write queue at a time.
824 * Fix for databases sometimes incorrectly reporting that they contain 0
825 documents after compaction.

835 views. (COUCHDB-84)
