4.1.2 definitely had problems with hostnames with dashes, but some fixes
went into 4.1.3.  I'm running 5 pbs_servers (4.1.3) on hosts that have
dashes in them without any problems.  Some other users have reported that
issues persist in 4.1.3, but it works fine here.  I would recommend trying
4.1.3 before reverting to 3.x.

Next time you see this serverdb corruption, save off a copy of the
"broken" serverdb file.  That might help find the source of the problem.
