Is fs-base-test broken on BDB 4.4?

Hello all,

I've just upgraded my Slackware-based system from BDB 4.2.52 to 4.4.20.
That broke my existing svn installation (since the old libraries went
away), so I've just recompiled 1.3.0.

Anyway, all the tests pass except for fs-base-test #2, which fails with:
svn_tests: Berkeley DB error for filesystem test-repo-open-berkeley while opening environment:
Invalid argument
svn_tests: bdb: DB_REGISTER limits each process to a single open DB_ENV handle
FAIL: lt-fs-base-test 2: open an existing Berkeley DB filesystem

I don't know (or plan to learn) BDB and fs_base, but is this expected
behaviour for 1.3.0? I notice that the test seems to pass on trunk, so
I'm guessing that this is something Brane fixed with his BDB-4.4 patch
(though it didn't change the test). Does SVN 1.3.0 work with BDB 4.4?

Hmm, now I'm wondering whether we support 'new' versions of BDB. If we
didn't, I would have expected that we'd have a list of allowed versions,
like we do with Neon.

Either way, I'm thinking that we should have something in the 1.3.0
release notes.

Regards,
Malcolm
