Well, the kind of lock we're getting on that file is a shared lock, so
it should be okay to get it twice. So, I'll go with "a problem with
your system." (Though perhaps with win98 in general, and not just with
your system in particular. Do other people have experience with trying
FSFS under win98?)

In the long run, I'd like FSFS to work even on systems which aren't 100%
correct, which means not grabbing the recovery read lock. That lock
isn't really necessary for FSFS repositories anyway, at least as long as
recovery isn't doing anything.

I don't know if I can promise a fix in 1.1.2, but maybe. (If you are in
a position to build the svn code yourself, I could supply a patch which
would break BDB functionality--not a loss on win98--but eliminate your
locking problem.)
