I think (may be wrong) that 1.6 did away with support for BDB. A few questions:

1) Is F a network drive? If so, you should be using a proper server
(svnserve or Apache), not file:/// . file:/// is meant only for
single-user local access.
2) What version of Subversion was the repository created with?
3) Why are you using BDB? FSFS has been the default since 1.2 and in
most situations, more desireable.

You can convert the repository to FSFS by dumping it to a file
(svnadmin dump), then loading it (svnadmin load) into a
freshly-created repository
