Peculiar Subversion problem

Greetings all,

We've been working with Subversion for quite a while, but a couple of
days ago we ran into some odd problems. Some of our repositories are
working fine; the users who are supposed to have access to them do have
access, and nobody else does. However, some of the repositories cannot
be accessed at all; a web browser or svn client simply hangs if one
attempts to access them. I've checked and rechecked the permissions, and
I don't see a problem there.

I then tried svnadmin recover on the failing repositories, and got
behavior I'd never seen before; the 'svnadmin recover' command itself
hung. There's no indication of what's going on in any of the error logs
I've looked at, and I'm kind of at a loss.

For reference, all of the repositories, the good and the bad, are found
in the same /svn parent directory. They have identical permissions.

I'm at a loss to explain this behavior...could anyone offer some advice?
If there's more information you need, please let me know.

Thanks much,
