No, no messages at all.
Any command I run from the local server just stays frozen and I
have to kill the terminal.
It has occured on svn ls, svnadmin recover and svnadmin
list-dblogs so far.
And no ls listing since ls is failing.

It is not huge nor critical (LGPL'ed), so I will do that.
If you want I also have that svn dump I talk about later in that

Indeed it was installed yesterday. The version used before that
was 1.0.3 then 1.0.4. The same problem occured a few days ago,
then we upgraded to 1.0.4 and it didn't change anything. We had
to move the repos away and reimport from scratch. But it was only
the repos for the manual of the app, which is far less critical
than the source code.

I have a dump of it from a few days ago, but I'd really like to
know what happens / has happened in order to avoid encountering
the same issue...
