writing to repos fails

Hi there..
we do have a servious problem today, maybe someone can give me a hand:

our repos worked fine over the last month, since this morning we can't write
to it any longer. svn update works, so reading access seems to be ok.

a commit results in this message:
Transmitting file data .svn: Berkeley DB error
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Berkeley DB error while appending string for filesystem
DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery

a db recovery finishes without any problems, the permissions are corrected
automatically (I wrote a wrapper for the svnrepair cmd)
so the svn process does have write access on the repository file structure.

the environment:
access is done via file, not via http, the repos runs on a linux box (kernel
the cmd line svn command serves as client (on linux boxes as well)
svn version is 0.22.2 (r5918) (I know that's not really up-to-date, but it
just worked fine for us...)
Berkeley DB has version 4.1

before pulling back tp the latest backup I'd like to ry to repair the repos
since we would have lost one days work otherwise. So if anyone can give me a
hint I'd be really happy...

Thanx in advance,
