I also host a project at Berlios and I'm having the same problem Oliver has
("svnlook diff" segfaulting). But I managed to get a gdb trace.

The cause seems to be a strange error happening when removing a temporary
directory (on a call to "svn_io_remove_dir").
$ gdb svnlook
(gdb) set args diff /svnroot/repos/chalks -r 51
(gdb) r
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
