Subject: In memory databases use a file anyway

As stated in the docs, the following code... tie my %h, 'DB_File' , undef, O_CREAT, 0600, $DB_BTREE ... should create an in memory tree database. But the truth is that it is creating a file to store the data at "/var/tmp/DBD$$"; I believe that the documentation should be updated to reflect that behavior (or the code changed to really use in memory databases).
