Except that the trouble arised *before* doing a recover, but *after*
removing unused logfiles. This after goes for both the repos which
are on different machines using their own Apaches.

No, as far as I understand this there was nothing running or hung.
In the browser I had closed windows attempting to connect to the
repos, requests per TSVN closed, commands on command line
CTRL-C'd. So to my understanding there was no latent process
when stopping Apache.

Just tested things with file:///, too, and there access is lost as well.
This should be final evidence that Apache is not the cause for this.

The strange thing is that after running recover things work for some
short time before the trouble starts again.
