I have had problems with BDB. I haven't had problems with FSFS. It's
only my experience, but if I remember well, I still haven't heard a
single complaint of corruption from someone using FSFS. From BDB,
instead, you can find aplenty.

"Failing everytime". What that means? In my case, the repository seemed
locked forever and coulnd't be recovered. What I mean is that there
weren't error messages after the one in the first failure, nor
progressive corruption... A failed commit and then nothing in any operation.

That's the same period I use.

My bottom line: if you haven't any special reason to use BDB, give FSFS
a try.
