We need to know what installed /usr/lib/python2.4/lib-dynload/dbm_failed.so
`equery b /usr/lib/python2.4/lib-dynload/dbm_failed.so`
Sorry, I should have mentioned earlier. equery returns nothing about the file.
I presumed with this one it would be more or less obvious to someone suitably experienced with python.
Let me know if there is anything else I can do to provide info.

Well, then delete it and move on; we cannot fix collisions with orphaned stuff.
