I see the Debian users all come out at once. :-) I've warned others on this
list, and I'm going to warn you as well. BDB 4.1.25 has issues. It appears
to cause random repository corruption, and as Justin pointed out in another
email, this may be due to some problems in 4.1.25's shared memory
implementation. IMHO, 4.1.25 is just not reliable enough for Subverion's

If you value your time and Intellectual Property, I would get the latest
subversion (0.37.0), apache2 (2.0.48), and BDB (4.2.52). Recompile them all
and use it instead. You'll need to make sure you do a dump/load of your
repositories since the database schema has changed between 0.33 and 0.37.
Look at the FAQ for how that is done.
