I re-ran my tests today using svnserve instead of Apache, and had no
problem. I moved back to Apache and got this during the Transferring
Data phase:
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: At least one property change failed; repository is unchanged

... and the db is now locked up.

I ran your script over an http connection and got a failure as well.

Are any of the developers watching this thread? This seems pretty
consistently repeatable.. is there any further troubleshooting you'd
like us to do to help track down the problem?
