acedb3.3 reinitialisation bug

Has anyone noticed the following bug in the new acedb3.3?

The system crashes if an attempt is made to reinitialise it
by removing the database/ACEDB.wrm file only.

!! FATAL ERROR 0: !!  Bad Block Address in partition

Increasing the DISK size in wspec/cachesize.wrm improves
the situation temporarily but only until the next time
ACEDB.wrm is removed. 

Deleting the whole of the database/* directory each time the
system is reinitialised removes the problem as far as I can tell.
