berkeley db errors while appending string for filesystem

I'm running subversion on a Debian system (subversion (deb 1.0.5-1),
berkeley (deb 4.2.52-16) with repository access only via http protocol, so
the user would be "www-data". The filesystem is ext3, disk space is big

We ran the repository without problems for months now (size approx 1.5
GB), but within the last two days we suddenly got plenty db problems

berkeley db error while appending string for filesystem
DB_RUNRECOVERY : fatal error, run databas recovery

checking the db, I realized that the size has increased to ~8GB in the
meantime (seemingly within a very short time). the ext3 filesystem limit
is far beyond (16 TB I think) and the berkeley db max size should be
something between 2 and 256 TB, I think. But I can't think of any other
reason for the suddenly arising problems.
svnadmin recover worked fine, and I also removed the pending transactions
resulting from those errors, but nearly every other checkin results in a
db error (svnlook works without problems)

Has anybody experience with very large repositories or are there known

And, is there a way to find out what transaction caused a certain db
increase (i.e. which checkin added how much data)?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / with regards
