svnadmin create dies strangely - WinXP

Hello... i talked about this to a few people on IRC:

Working in WinXP-SP1 on a recently NTFS formatted local partition.

upon doing:
D:\>svnadmin create svntest

i get:
svn: Berkeley DB error while creating 'nodes' table for filesystem
svntest/db:
DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery

which is, of course, unrecoverable.
The fun bit is when i started poking around with this, i found out that
i can create the DB in other partitions (i got five, two on one disk,
three in another, all local) as long as it wasnt the same physical
disk.... O_o;;

Then i tried creating a DB in C, which worked, but when moving to one of
the offending partitions, svnlook would die trying to fetch the date or log.
Then, i created a new DB, moved it there, and moved it back. It still
worked.
Then, i created a new DB, moved it there, did svnlook date on it, then
moved it back. It was dead.

any Ideas? i know i could install linux, i could mount the DB in another
partition, etc.. but thats not what im asking about.
Thanks.

PS: i did try changing permissions and owner to no avail. thats the
reason behind the format.
