This bizarre error message appears if using the DBI
backends and the webserver url passed to the cgi script
does not match the one in the lxr.conf file. This
causes the $dbname variable to be unset (since the
configuration is not found) and so the default DBM
database backend is selected.

Really we should provide a much better error message
here, pointing out that the urls don't match.

    Fixed by making Index.pm give a much better warning message
    if it can't locate the right backend to use.
