I have now updated my kernel. After two further crash/db_recover
cycles, the problem seems, for the moment, to have been eliminated.
According to the xfs experts, 2.4.17-xfs did have mmap problems.

For reference, the problem occurred on every database I created.
Db_recover only solved it temporarily. I also ran svnadmin dump a few
times, created a fresh database and loaded the data back in, but this
didn't fix it.

For the moment (following the kernel upgrade) the problem is gone. I
suspect database corruption due to kernel (possibly xfs) issues.

I shall let you know if it recurs.

With thanks for your assistance,
