Berkeley DB error

From: Rob Shepherd <robshep_at_informatics.bangor.ac.uk>

Dear list.

the following output appears from interactions with my repo.

svn: Berkeley DB error while moving cursor for file system
/export/home/robshep/svn/db:
DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
svn: bdb: page 625193: illegal page type or format
svn: bdb: PANIC: Invalid argument
svn: bdb: fatal region error detected; run recovery
svn: bdb: fatal region error detected; run recovery
svn: Berkeley DB error while closing 'nodes' database for filesystem
/export/home/robshep/svn/db:
DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
svn: bdb: fatal region error detected; run recovery

this exact message comes from 'svnlook tree' or 'svnadmin dump'

I have tried to run 'svnadmin recover /export/home/robshep/svn/'
I have tried to db_recover in the db directory

the process is over very fast. (immediatly really)

you may also note, I own all the files and there is only myself who uses the
repository through the svn+ssh protocol.

Is my database screwed? I have a recent backup however, can I recover or would
it be best to 'svnadmin load'

regards

Rob

PS.

> svnadmin --version
svnadmin, version 1.1.1 (r11581)

and Berkeley db-4.1

on Solaris 9 SPARC.

cheers
