subversion fud...and rcs old timers..

We are in the midst of conversion from clear case to subversion.
Apparently someone in-house built a version of subversion on fedora 1
(probably incorrectly?) and had a issue with a wedged/locked db file. This
raised concerned form rcs folk about the security of source code
should a db file become corrupted, etc...
Folk read Ben's fud note, but there is still some fear, if a db file is
partially damaged is it recoverable sans backup? Have there been any
issues between subversion versions and db structure? Looking for any
info that can help dispel the fear in some old time rcs folk (yes,
they used to hack rcs files and are looking for analog to vi
+ rcs files).
Thanks for your time and any info.
