I could indeed open a new ssh session and kill the process, but without
being able to run
the svnadmin recover the repository would remain offline.

Once rebooted the recovery took about 5 seconds to complete.

If it might be of any relevance the source repository stores no secrets
(it's used for an
open source project), so I can zip it up and put it online if that might
be useful. I didn't
think of this before now so actually doing it will have to wait until it
happens again.

Yours,
Morten
