I get wedges occassionally when dumping an "on-line"
repository. I would say this happens less than 1% of
dumps, but when it happens, that particular repository
becomes unresponsive.

Win32, 0.34.1 of svn.

It's possible that I'm running apache and the dump process
as two different users; if that's the issue, I can arrange
to fix it, but for now, I've also being stopping apache
when a backup job fails and wedges the repo.
