Problem accessing local repo

Hi.

Subversion has been working well for me for months, but my latest update
and build now gives the following error when trying to access a repo
kept on my machine:

svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///mnt/src/svnrepo/pythoncad/trunk'
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem
/mnt/src/svnrepo/db:
Invalid argument

$ svn --version
svn, version 1.2.0 (dev build)
   compiled Jul 25 2004, 10:04:37
...
* ra_dav : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV (DeltaV)
* protocol.
  - handles 'http' schema
  - handles 'https' schema
* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
  - handles 'file' schema
* ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network protocol.
  - handles 'svn' schema
$

Any known code issues from a day or two ago that cause Berkeley DB to
get messed up?

My latest build also used Debian's 'libdb-4.2' package instead of my own
built DB-4.2 libraries. The 'libdb-4.2' libraries are configured so that
the 'db.h' header file redefines various calls by appending a number to
the call, and my older (home-built) library was not configured to do
that. As that change should just effect building and run-time linkage, I
don't see how that could affect the reading of existing Berkeley DB
files.

Suggestions welcomed. Should I switch over to the 1.1.x branch, as the
trunk is in flux? An svn rebuild looks to be necessary at some point.

Thanks in advance.
