You say that "it could be a bad bug", but it's not clear what you mean
by "it". What's the problem? You showed us a DB error about not being
able to open the 'nodes' table, followed by a successful 'svnadmin
recover'. Is the error now fixed? Does it persist? We need a better
description of what's wrong.

Here's the standard checklist:

* the repository isn't being accessed via a network share like NFS,
right? That's a big no-no.

* Was the problem simply one of permissions... that apache didn't have
full read/write access to all the database files? See next point:

* I can see that the repository is being accessed by at least three
different processes -- (1) apache, (2) a client using file:///, (3) an
administrator using 'svnadmin'. Are you doing all of these accesses
safely? As the same user? If not, are you being careful about umasks?
Look at the "Using Multiple Servers" section at the end of chapter 6 for
  details about this.
