I disagree. I'm using BDB 4.0.14 and while ra_dav is slower than
ra_svn/ra_local it's nowhere near as bad as the dropoff reported
here. I know you regularly claim that BDB 4.0.14 is in some way
broken, but it's not universally true.

Anyway, in this case use Debian/testing and db4.1_recover have been
mentioned, so I assume BDB 4.1 is in use.
