To put this back on the radar screen, there has been a number of issues
with people using 4.1.25 on Linux/FreeBSD boxes that have had repositories
that end up being corrupted where the only way to recover is to restore

I'm hoping svn.collab.net will be moved again to 4.1.25 at some point to
get the experts on it.
