repos not accessible after log files removed

Hi all out there!

A strange coincidence:

some hours after a huge commit I could not access the production
repos anymore (via Apache) and I had to stop and start Apache
(restart would not do). Before starting I did svnadmin recover. On
the time of the repos request the user of the SVN server machine
got a Windows message about lacking virtual memory.

The next day this repeated. Looking deeper into it I found that
Apache did not respond at all. That is, server/manual timed out, too.

Still thinking this were an Apache issue of some sort I was much
surprised to find that except for the virtual memory message I had
the same problem on my own machine accessing a local test
repos via my own local Apache server. I had not done so for about
a fortnight, but Apache always run quietly in the background.

However, Sep. 7 I had run

             svnadmin lsdblogs --only-unused | xargs rm

on it. And the same command after the commit to the other
machine with the production repos.

Going further back to my first steps with SVN before setting up
Apache I had this with the first repos and file:/// access, too. That
was with SVN .25. Checking out per file:///repos is impossible now
again, the command hangs and finally times out. Looks like the
repos does like to have *all* its logs around, even those reported to
be no longer in use.

Moving log files back into the db folder from a backup did not help

Running SVN .27, Apache 2.0.47, Win2K SP2.

Thanks for any suggestions.
