There was actually a patch committed (yesterday?) to do just this.
Previously the error was not being propagated back up to the client.

In the future, errors like this should produce output like this:

svn: Couldn't find a repository
svn: No repository found in 'svn://localhost/home/svn/trunk'
svn: Berkeley DB error
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem
/home/svn/db: Permission denied

(Well, according the the submitter's post to the list it should, I
haven't actually tested it because I don't have a current version of svn
built at the moment.)
