Comment (by pishmishy):

 Now I've got even more questions :-) ...

 If it's intended for visitors and not the user why do we even go as far as
 mentioning a database problem?

 What about users who don't type the admin URL, and only know to follow the
 wp_loginout() link? I'm sure this is the case for most of my users (who
 admittedly are far from experts)

 Why aren't we passing the terse message to wp_die()
