As far as I know SDBM is very simple and doesn't do any locking, so
the apr-util wrappers have to do it. BDB, and I think GDBM, provide
their own locking.

The Subversion regression tests don't do any concurrent database
access, so they won't trigger this problem.

The BDB source includes extensive regression tests, you could try
running those.

It looks like the locking provided by BDB/GDBM doesn't work on your
system--so it's a kernel/filesystem/libc/compiler problem, but I don't
know which :)
