I will try to "recapitulate".
So first some additions to my "somhow strange" installation.
I use the svn client from the fink distribution,
ans have a selfe buld apache 2.0.44 with subversion 0.20 isntalled
only to have a checkput for other machines.
This worked fine for a long time.
The trouble startet, when fink updated the svn-client to version 0.21.0.
This now depends on the db41 as the only major difference.

Because updating of the client never produces a problem before (im
using svn since version 0.17) i just tried to commit my dayle changes
which didnt work, but unfortunatly due to a power shorcut i lost this
error message ... so i recall from my memory
But there wa also a message thet there is a Problem with the berkeley
DB and i should recover this db.
So i did a svnadmin recover which worked fine
But sill a checkin didnt work.
i tried a checkout of my repos in a different dir but there i got the
error that some character is not supportet
(afir thie was '15s' or '15v')

i removed all transactions via svnadmin rmtxns

and from this on i get for each access to the repos

svn: Invalid filesystem transaction name
svn: no transaction named `4v' in filesystem `/Volumes/Files/Subversion/db'

I hope this unfortunatly inprecise description can help ...
is this error recoverable ?

Thanks Roland
