What you describe is the recommended repository upgrade method.

I'd expect similar results if my car told me "you're oil pressure is
low" and I reacted by dumping in Wesson(tm)!

The db format changed *significantly*.

It's not likely, but keep in mind that just to dump a repository you
need not rebuild apache. Just build the 0.14.0 tarball for a
client-only build -- it has a "known good" apr and apr-util in it.
