I'm having a great day!!!

I just got a similar problem on a totally separate repository. This is my own Orca

I did a successful checkin and then an svn update on a separate working copy.
This stalled out and strace showed svn waiting in select for a long time and
httpd with no CPU time.

I killed the child process and attempted to resume the svn update. Now I get

$ svnadmin recover repos
Acquiring exclusive lock on repository db.
Recovery is running, please stand by...
Recovery completed.
subversion/libsvn_fs/bdb/bdb-err.c:61: (apr_err=160029)
svn: Berkeley DB error
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening `uuids' table for filesystem repos/db:
Invalid argument

Any reason why this table would be messed up?

I'll be glad to help out in any way, just let me know what info is needed.
It sounds like the main Subversion repos may be suffering the same trouble,
so it may be easier to debug that one since you've got direct access to it,
but if you need anything from mine, let me know.

I should note that I'm using my own compiled db 4.1.25 that hasn't changed
since January 6th and things have been fine up to now, so I don't think that
would be the problem.

I did upgrade to Red Hat 9 which has the new NPTL threads, but I'm guessing
that svn.collab.net hasn't been upgraded, so it may not be the OS threads.
