See __db_tas_mutex_lock in the stack trace? It's probably sleeping
to wait for acquisition of that mutex. This is the classical
deadlock scenario.

Either SVN is creating a deadlock by holding two locks or something
in BDB is causing a deadlock. My hunch is that the mutex operation
they are using on Linux is funky. We've seen lots of problems with
certain mutex methods on Linux over in httpd-land.

I wonder if BDB's mutex on Linux allows recursive locking? If not
and if we're assuming that's possible, then that could be an issue.
But, it works on almost all other platforms... -- justin
