Yep, that did the trick:

After upgrading to Berkeley DB 4.3, I'm seeing repository errors.

Normally one can simply run svnadmin recover to upgrade a Berkeley DB
repository in-place. However, due to a bug in the way this command
invokes the db_recover() API, this won't work correctly when upgrading
from BDB 4.0/4.1/4.2 to BDB 4.3.

Use this procedure to upgrade your repository in-place to BDB 4.3:

    * Make sure no process is accessing the repository (stop Apache,
      svnserve, restrict access via file://, svnlook, svnadmin, etc.)
    * Using an older svnadmin binary (that is, linked to an older BerkeleyDB):
         1. Recover the repository: 'svnadmin recover /path/to/repository'
         2. Make a backup of the repository.
         3. Delete all unused log files. You can see them by running
            'svnadmin list-unused-dblogs /path/to/repeository'
         4. Delete the shared-memory files. These are files in the
            repository's db/ directory, of the form __db.00*

The repository is now usable by Berkeley DB 4.3.

Steve: is there any way one can do this without the CL client?
