svnserve crashing and database corruption

Can someone please give me some pointers about where to start looking for the cause of this problem.
 
I am running subversion 1.0.4 on a Windows 2000 server. The repository is held on a local drive. We run svnserve to connect to the repository. I am using hte command line from a windows 2000 machine.

The system has been running fine for at least 3 months, with over 590 revisions.
 
I have done a clean checkout of a directory, made some changes and tried to commit. Everytime I attempt to commit the svnserve process dies and I have to run svnadmin recover, partway through sending the change to the server.
 
I have done svnadmin lstxn then svnlook changed to see what was in the transaction and there are different files out of the commit in it each time.
 
I have done a checkout of another directory and that worked OK, so I did a checkout of the directory I am problems commiting to and that worked OK.
 
Where should I start looking for the cause of the problem?
 
I do have a backedup database, but it is from yesterday lunchtime and unfortunately quite a lot has happed this morning so I would rather try and fix the current database before restoring the backup.
