FWIW, Subversion stopped dumping core and requiring a db_recover
sometime between 2490 and 2521. Part of the "nasty commit bug" sounded
suspiciously close to my ear. Now, it does this:

    svn_error: #21086 : <A repository hook failed.>
      Commit failed (details follow):

    svn_error: #21086 : <A repository hook failed.>
      run_post_commit_hook: error running cmd

    svn_error: #21089 : <Error calling external program>
      svn_io_run_cmd: error exitcode 255 for process

And leaves the working copy as if the commit never happened. The patch
leaves the working copy correct; it just doesn't warn that post-commit
