Hello! Here's our problem (as root):

 /usr/lib/subversion/tools/backup/hot-backup.py subversion/ BACKUPS/

Youngest revision is 688
Backing up repository to 'BACKUPS/subversion-688'...

'svnadmin recover' and 'svnadmin verify' report nothing amiss. We can check out, commit, and update without errors; we just can't back up our repository. So, what's the problem here?

Thanks for any help! Btw, this is svn 1.1.1. :]
