849 Database Core:
850
851 * Fix for replication problems where the write queues can get backed up if the
852 writes aren't happening fast enough to keep up with the reads. For a large
853 replication, this can exhaust memory and crash, or slow down the machine
854 dramatically. The fix keeps only one document in the write queue at a time.
855 * Fix for databases sometimes incorrectly reporting that they contain 0
856 documents after compaction.
