I don't think this is the problem.

He said he increased QUILL_DBSIZE_LIMIT to 60 and the error persists.

The problem is that the condor_dbmsd will not pick up this change
unless it is restarted.  And you can't restart the condor_dbmsd using
the condor_restart command because it doesn't have that as an option.

What you can do, as root, is "kill -TERM <pid of condor_dbmsd>" so it
will be restarted by the condor_master.  I had to do that earlier this
month for that exact same problem.

P.S. The "descrease" is not a typo, it is a flaw in the message text.
