slow operation with BDB back-end

I'm posting here according to Karl Fogel's suggestion about my
experiences with subversion. In a nutshell, I started out with a
BDB-based repository for holding a quite large amount of files. It was
unacceptably slow and unpredictable. After some suggestions on the
users@ list, I upgraded SVN to the latest stable version (1.1.3), and
compiled the server part with APR configured with
--with-devrandom=/dev/urandom. This seemingly made operation a bit
faster, but some merges and commits still took hours. Finally I
converted to FSFS back-end, which solved my problem, with operation
times expectable based on the amount of files and data, the network, and
the machines used.

Karl nevetheless considered this issue worth posting here, so I'm
complying. Relevant thread from users@ :

     * For minor problems, reboot
     * For major problems, reinstall
