Is the Apache server crashing? Can you enable core dumps for Apache and
rebuild subversion with --enable-maintainer-mode? Then use gdb to
provide us a backtrace of what happened?

Also it might be helpful if you can find the access_logs for the
operation/operations that broke the repo.

Beyond that hopefully one of the bdb experts can make some suggestions
that might help figure out how the repo is borken and that might give us
some clues...
