svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem tachs/db

Hi,

I'm trying to set up a subversion server. Things seem to go well, until I do
something with svnadmin on the server.

Here is the sequence:
svn@maske 13:16:08> svnadmin create tachs

TortoiseSVN: import empty directory structure (trunk\ and branches\)
TortoiseSVN: import initial stuff in trunk\
TortoiseSVN: checkout
TortoiseSVN: various updates/commits
TortoiseSVN: Branch/Tag

Everything seems OK. I can browse the repository with Internet Explorer.

Then, back to command line (on the server):
svn@maske 13:16:15> svnadmin dump tachs >tachs.dump
* Dumped revision 0.
* Dumped revision 1.
* Dumped revision 2.
* Dumped revision 3.
* Dumped revision 4.
Aborted

(tachs.dump empty)

Second try:
svn@maske 13:25:19> svnadmin dump tachs >tachs.dump
/srv/svn/
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem tachs/db:
DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery

That's it, nothing works anymore. I get "Could not open the requested SVN
filesystem" in IE6. As far as I can tell, the permissions are unchanged
except for apache log file:

svn@maske 13:26:49> umask
/srv/svn/
0002
svn@maske 13:27:34> ls -l tachs/db
/srv/svn/

I've seen a couple of mails about a possible problem with NPTL. I recompiled
db with --disable-posixmutexes. I also have --enable-compat185.

Still no luck. I have no idea what to do next. Any advice?

Thanks
Xtian
