[NBLUG/talk] Deja-vu with apt-get database errors

I seem to remember that I had this problem when I once installed Debian/Woody
and subsequently tried to upgrade to Debian/Sarge. I'm now running
Debian/Etch, and I seem to have encountered the same problem. And now I
can't remember how I fixed the problem the first time!
The relevant output from apt-get is:
Reading package lists...
E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room
E: Error occurred while processing libdbi-ocaml (NewVersion1)
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/dpkg/status
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

It would save me a lot of time if you just gave up and went mad now.
