Corrupted Transactions [Lost data]

From: Adam Gautier <adam_gautier_at_yahoo.com>

I am using Fedora and installed subversion using the
provided RPMS. I am currently running version .32.
My repository was running on version .16-.18 and I
upgraded to my current setup about two months ago.
Everything was working fin until about two weeks ago I
ran a checkin and got:

[mada@sandbox1 mada-test]$ svn ci -m "latest changes"
svn: RA layer request failed
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: OPTIONS request failed on
svn: OPTIONS of
500 Internal Server Error

Then after running svnadmin recover and verify I get:

* Verified revision 1479.
svn: Filesystem has no such representation
svn: svn_fs__bdb_read_rep: no such representation

The first time I got this I did multiple svnadmin dump
and loads to work arround the problem and had to junk
all of the working copies in the organization because
they kept reporting bad version numbers after the load
because I would dump like this 0-1430 then
1432-1460(incremental), then 1462-HEAD(incremental).
This seemed to work but then the problem just
reoccured (obviously the transaction name is
different). I have been hapilly using the system for
two weeks without incident. Also, maybe related to
this is that I get alot of apache timeout errors.
This happens about onece a week and I run svnadmin
recover and verify and everything works fine. I am
more than willing to provide more info about this just
let me know what you need. I do not want to try my
previous solution since I lost some data doing it that
way. I was in such a rush I am not sure it it user
error or subversion that lost the data but this time I
am just making everyone wait until I fully solve the
problem. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers, Adam
