The behaviour we see is this: when we have both read-only access through
the apache2 svn module and write-access through svnserve it frequently
happens that the apache module gets stuck and does not release a lock
(lsof shows an open file handle on locks/db.lock). This means that the
a commit using svnserve will block indefinitely, until I kill off apache
which releases the lock. Occasionaly however the repository is left in a
bad state during that process and I have to recover it.

This problem is very noticable with our linux kernel repository so it
seems that the size or complexity of the repository does play a role
in the likelyhood this problem is hit.
