anydbm.error seems not to be known on different systems. On Debian 4.0 the exception raised in this case ist:
DBInvalidArgError: (22, 'Invalid argument -- ./data/insult_insults: unsupported hash version: 9')
data/insult_insults was created on Ubuntu 8.04 with the shelve module of Python 2.5.2, which seems to create a file with a bsddb format version, which does not work on Debian 4.0 and Mac OS 10.5.

Normally the resource files don't get shipped with P1tr, but for the insult plugin this is necessary.
