I think that the user 'nobody' should never own any files or directories. I
can imagine that this user intentionally can't create temporary files, which
would probably mess up the BDB access.
As far as Apache is concerned, isn't it normal to run that as user 'www' or
'www-data'? I think that would also be right in your case, i.e. let the
repository be owned by that instead of 'nobody'.
