Hi all,

I have been using svn for quite some time now, it usually works very
nicely for me. thanks for this powerful tool.

I am using version 1.1.0 with a bdb backend.
access method file://
Recently when i tried to check in some changes i got a crash.
backtrace follows:

#0 0x402c5781 in kill () from /lib/libc.so.6

anyways i think the main problem is located at the server, as retrying
shows that the repo is corrupt:

svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///svn/SVN_DATABASES'
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for
filesystem /svn/SVN_DATABASES/db:
DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
svn: bdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery

svnadmin recover works, but checking in again fails again.

i used this repository, checkout and subversion version for a few days
now, and up to now everything worked flawlessly. (actually this checkin
was done by a script - so it is still done by the same user, the same

unfortunately the data is company data, so i cant make it available.

what should i try next ? any way to check if the server works - and get
a coredump out of it (if it crashes)
