As I noted, I did not change BDB at all. Also, even if I try and use
the static version of svnadmin, I get very different results:

[root@hermes mlbassoc]# svnadmin-1.0.6-1 dump ~gthomas/SVN_BACKUPS/repo-638/
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem /home/gthomas/SVN_BACKUPS/repo-638/db:
Invalid argument
[root@hermes mlbassoc]# svnadmin-1.0.9-1 dump ~gthomas/SVN_BACKUPS/repo-638/
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem /home/gthomas/SVN_BACKUPS/repo-638/db:
Function not implemented
[root@hermes mlbassoc]# svnadmin-1.1.1-1.static dump ~gthomas/SVN_BACKUPS/repo-638/
Segmentation fault

These are all against an untouched repository I made using 'hotcopy'
yesterday, *before* I touched anything.
