Question about Berkekely DB versions and local repo access

From: <ahaas_at_airmail.net>

I've got a problem accessing a local subversion repository on a machine,
while access to another local subversion repository on the machine works
without problems. The oddest thing is that I am the owner of the files
in the repository I cannot access, and have read and write permission on
the files and directories in the repository!

The repository causing trouble originated on my home machine, and I can
read and write to it here locally without problem. I use rsync to mirror
this repository to a remote machine, creating a remote backup and what
will be shortly a read-only access point to others. I can log into the
remote machine, see that the files are there, see that the timestamps and
sizes look correct, but then trying 'svn ls' gives ...

$ svn ls file:///path/to/svnrepo
svn: Couldn't open a repository.
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository file:///path/to/svnrepo
svn: Berkeley DB error
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem /path/to/svnrepo/db:
Resource temporarily unavailable

I _can_ however do a similar command to another local repository on the
machine and things work fine. This repository was created on that
machine, and by a different user that myself, so the subversion program
on that machine has the necessary code for accessing local repositories.

One difference between the two machines is that on my machine here the
Berkeley libraries are version 4.0 (4.0.14), and on the remote machine
subversion was built against version 4.1 libraries. So, are there any
known issues with accessing a repository built with different versions
of the Berkeley DB library? Any other ideas or suggestions for things to
look for if the library issue is not relevant?

Thanks in advance.
