Yes, this is 1.4.0, with a small collection of patches we have
accumulated. In case you're curious, the patches all live at
svn://svn.debian.org/pkg-subversion/trunk/debian/patches/. None are
related to db4.4.

Thanks, this's the hint I needed. For historical and arcane technical
reasons, our build process runs the testsuite as root on exactly those
I wonder why it never failed in 1.3 and before. Perhaps this is a new
test? In any case, I'll see if it is possible to rearrange our test
invocation to run during the non-root phase of the build. I don't see
any current reason not to do this, so I think it is merely historical.
