strange BD issues on new repository

Hello,

 I have setup subversion 1.1 against a DB 4.3 setup. This is all done on OSX ( not using fink )

  Everything seems to be OK, and I was even able to look at the empty repository through Apache on another machine. Being stupid, I tried to use a client ( svnX ) to create a directory off the repository root, and after that, I now get the following error when trying to do a svnadmin verify or any other general file checkout , checkin , etc on the repository :

 Berkeley DB error while fetching string length for filesystem /Volumes/RAID_5/Code_Vault/svn/db: DB_BUFFER_SMALL: User memory too small for return value

 svnadmin recover will operate without a hitch, but afterwards, everything is still screwed up.

 Anyone know why this happened, and more importantly... how to recover the repository? I have nothing in this repository worth saving, but I would really hate to have the same problem happen in the future and loose much valuable data.

 One last question....

 I read the section on backup... but as I am the only user of the repository, what are my chances of trashing my repository if I use a backup program ( such as Retrospect or BackupExec ) to backup my repository instead of using the python scripts.

 Thank you for all of your help...

 Hugh
