APR does not understand this error code

HTTP commit access to a repository stopped working all of a sudden. I tried/am still trying to create a directory.

> svn --version
svn, version 0.37.0 (r8509)

From the client

> svn mkdir -m "Creating private branch" http://bart/svn/online/branches/smcclena
Authentication realm: <http://bart:80> Subversion repository
Password for 'smcclena':
svn:
Can't open activity db: APR does not understand this error code

In Apache's error_log

[Fri Mar 12 10:37:52 2004] [error] [client 10.0.0.200] Could not create activity
 /svn/online/!svn/act/3d68c2c0-71d5-0310-ba46-e30dd246688a. [500, #0]

: Can't open activity db: APR does not understand this error code [500, #120013
]

Is this another crazy permissions problem? Apache user apache belongs to the svn group. Do I need to setgid/uid on all repository directories, not just the db? Or do I just need to upgrade to 1.0 ?
