The problem is that your 1.0.1 svn and svnadmin are linked to an *old*
BDB, and they're trying to read a *new* set of BDB data. That's why the
repository went "dead" after your 1.0.1 upgrade, and that's why you
can't 'svnadmin recover' the repository with the 1.0.1 svnadmin.

Therefore you have two options:

   * undo the upgrade. Go back to your old svn RPMS that use the latest
BDB 4.2 libraries. They'll be able to recover your BDB 4.2 repository
and things will be normal again.

   * get a different upgrade. Install different 1.0.1 RPMS that
actually use BDB 4.2 rather than 4.0. (Or build Subversion yourself
against BDB 4.2.)

I can't be any more specific than that, because I don't play with RPMS,
and I certainly don't know how to tell you to manage your own RPMS.
