We use BDB and it has *never* got wedged and there is little reason why it should if you set up the
server correctly.

If you use one access method to the repository (Apache, or svnserve) and always run maintenance
commands as the user that server runs as you won't wedge your repository.

I know BDB isn't perfect, and it is easy to do something which wedges it, but follow the above rules
and you should have no problem. The book does spell out how to avoid BDB problems, see
