subversion 1.0.5, mod_dav_svn, gentoo, db4.1.25, and database corruption

Hello again list,

After taking everyone's screaming recommendation to use the https://
method (because svn+ssh doesn't work), I ran into the following
problem:

[glass:~/business/haquery] crescent% svn update
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/haquery'
svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/haquery': 500 Internal Server Error
(https://phonics.no-ip.com)

which led me to hop onto the server, and administer a can of svnadmin
recover:

vcr svn # pwd
/var/svn
vcr svn # ls
conf fnord fnord2 haquery
vcr svn # svnadmin recover haquery
Please wait; recovering the repository may take some time...

Recovery completed.
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening 'uuids' table for filesystem
haquery/db:
Invalid argument
vcr svn #

Interesting! A quick google leaves many impressions --
"it's db4.1 -- you need db4.2"
"it's the --mutex flag in bdb"
"it's the phase of the moon"

I really like svn. I have a backup of the broken repository. However,
I've spent more time fighting this version control system in the past
few months than I have using it. I even learned how to admin apache
just so I could use it. I wish I had the time and ability to hop on the
bugtracker and find the error points in the code. In the end, i just
want to use a good versioning system.

1) how do i fix this problem?
2) when is SVN expected to hit 2.0 (1.0)? I might try it again then.
