By this error, it looks like apache is using db 4.1, when previously it
was using db 4.2. (IOW, the database is a 4.2 database, which 4.1 can't
read.) Did you upgrade apache or apr or svn recently?

You're not having a permissions problem. If you were, the apache
errorlog would say "permission denied". Instead, it's complaining about
mismatched BDB library versions.
