Follow up, indeed using the db back-end exposes as issue in certain
situations.  I think this might actually be seen not just with SoftHSM
but might lead to transient, non-fatal skips with particular HSM
setups.  Interesting.  I'm not sure if the mistake is actually in
OpenDNSSEC or with SoftHSM, but I'll probably fix it first in
OpenDNSSEC.  Although I haven't tracked down the complete issue yet,
this looks good.
