Hi,

i had the same error once on my MacosX mashine ... it happened also
with the db4.0.14 ...
I updated to a new svn on the new db 4.1.x but the error remained :-(

But i was capable of making a svnadmin dump then i deleted my repos
and "checked" in the complete dump. since then the whole thing is
completly stable ...

Maybe this helps

Roland
