Thanks for the input. I assume you are not running Fedora Core 1(let me
know if you already tested that). I plan to run the same tests on
Fedora Core 1... I suspect that RedHat backported fixes that were made
in 4.2 of db into Fedora's Core 1's db 4.1 that caused most of the
problems in subversion. RedHat tends to do that a lot. What I am
hoping is that the default 4.1 is bad to use, but RedHat's(Fedora Core 1
specifically) version is ok to use. So far(since .32 I haven't had any

If you can think of any other scenarios to test to try and find any
issues with using Fedora's Core 1's db 4.1, let me know.

I realize that subversion developers are safe just saying don't use db
4.1 without exception. I don't really expect an official "It's ok to
use Fedora Core 1's db 4.1", but if I find some scenarios to test that
does not work on most db 4.1 installations, but work fine on Fedora Core
1's db 4.1 I will end up just using the same 4.1 with FC1 that I have
been using.
