No, SEEK_SET should be 0, not 2.  It will still compile if you get it
wrong, but any feature that tries to use it will be broken.

This has a drawback: SDBM has a limit of 1024 characters per key; this
means that no zigzag cell will be able to hold more than 1024
characters of data.

DB_File is really a much better choice here.
