Hmmm, there could be other places in libsvn_fs where a similar mistake
is made (that is, calling a function that could return DB_DEADLOCK,
but blindly wrapping the error without having an exception to pass
DB_DEADLOCK through unchanged).

Joe, should I open an issue about that, or were you already auditing
for this very thing anyway?
