Hehe =)

Unfortunately it's a bit difficult at the moment. I upgraded from
0.17 to 0.23 in the hope of fixing the problem, and discovered that the
new version can't read my old repository. So I'm in the middle of
restoring it from a dump.

Sorry for not mentioning that I was using an old version, I guess this
problem might already be fixed. If not, then I'll try to run Apache under
gdb and report what I find.

I found some messages in the Apache error logs that might explain things
to someone:

[Mon Jun 09 10:29:14 2003] [error] [client] Could not DELETE
  /svn/!svn/wrk/04a6b279-a7bf-0310-9261-8f56e76b0230/branch/firerack/teql/kernel/sources/arp_antidote/antidote2.diff.gz. [500, #0]
[Mon Jun 09 10:29:14 2003] [error] [client] Could not delete the
  resource. [500, #160029]
[Mon Jun 09 10:29:14 2003] [error] [client] (17)File exists:
  Berkeley DB error while appending string for filesystem
DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery [500, #160029]
[Mon Jun 09 10:29:14 2003] [error] [client] (20014)Error string
  not specified yet: Berkeley DB error while closing `nodes' database for
  filesystem /home/svn/root/db:
DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery

However, there are no segfaults or other apparent crashes of Apache,
except warnings like:

[Mon Jun 09 10:33:54 2003] [warn] child process 1706 still did not exit,
  sending a SIGTERM

Cheers, Chris.
