(I've switched this to users@subversion.tigris.org, away from dev@.)

We'll need more information: are you using file:// access, or svn://,
or http://? What version of Berkeley db are you using? How about an
'ls -laR' of your repository, and tell us the user yuo are able to
update as?

If you can do 'svnadmin dump', I highly recommend dumping that
repository, upgrading your subversion, and reloading.
