HELP!! - Berkeley DB error

From: sjohnson <sjohnson_at_parisgroup.net>
Date: 2003-07-17 10:02:59 CEST

We've been using svn for about 6 weeks now without a problem prior to
tonight. Tonight, we started getting this error when we tried to do
anything with our repository:
   Berkeley DB error while checkpointing after Berkeley DB transaction
for filesystem
      /usr/local/svn_repository/db: Invalid argument
I did a "svnadmin recover" on the repository and then tried checking
some things out. I then did an update in anticipation of a submit.
This all seemed to work OK.
Then I went to do a submit, and I got this error:
   Berkeley DB error while appending string for filesystem
      DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
From this point on, even checkouts and updates give this error. If I
again do a "svnadmin recover", then I"m back to the state where I can
read from the repository, but any commit will fail again as above.
Please please help. I just talked my colleague into switching to svn
even though it's virgin software, and I fear that he's going to kill me
when I tell him that the repository is horked. Please save my life if
you can by helping me to work thru this problem. I'd be forever
