Re: Subversion DB corruption

Hi Max

The machine hung just after committing, so my guess is that there was
still unflushed data in the disk cache. I would have expected a
journalling system to ensure that it's journal update were flushed to
disk before making any changes to the data.

Cheers,

Mike.
