Re: segfault on recover AND dump. is my repository doomed?

I tried using db 4.0 to dump the database files, and everything except strings
worked. The -r option made even strings work (though that means dataloss
occured). I then used db 4.1 to load the files again, with no complaints.
Sadly, when I then try to checkout the repository, even after svnadmin recover,
it says the filesystem is corrupt.

More generally, why is there no notice on the main tigris page stating that OS
X + DB 4.0.14 (you know, the version specified in the INSTALL file) can destroy
your data? Better still, why does the build process even allow the use of DB
4.0.14 on OS X?

I'm going to just give up and checkin my pre-subversion data into a linux
subversion repository and then update it to my current source, losing a solid
month worth of revision history. Fun.
