RE: DB corruption of first day of subversion

Nearly all "corruption" issues with BDB are permissions issues that are
easily avoided by following the documentation's instructions and easily
corrected. Of the rest, almost all is caused by running outdated versions of
BDB, esp 4.1 on OSX, and running BDB databases on network filesystems.

Maybe FSFS is more highly stable, but it's got nowhere the exposure of the
BDB FS, so judging the backends by search hits on this list for corruption
isn't a super good idea.

I have had problems with BDB. I haven't had problems with FSFS. It's
only my experience, but if I remember well, I still haven't heard a
single complaint of corruption from someone using FSFS. From BDB,
instead, you can find aplenty.
