svnadmin restore from dump crashes

I've checked the FAQ and google'd for more info on this problem, but have
turned up empty-handed.

I'm getting a checksum error during a dump/restore cycle, specifically,
during "svnadmin restore <dumpfile" on a file in revision 117 of 119
revisions. Luckily, since this near the end of the version history, I can
sort of just truncate the dump file to 116 revisions and get the developers
to live with it.

But I'd like to know if this is indicative of something else or if there is
a better work-around.

First, we use svn+Apache2+webdav to use subversion. Second, I'm doing the
dump/restore cycle because of problems we encountered sporadically during
checkouts and commits. Somewhere along the line, Bekerely DB was upgraded,
and periodic svnadmin recover's were not doing the trick (they'd help for a
little while). Third, apache was shutdown during the dump and restore
process. (Technically it was up, but restarted WITHOUT the -D SVN and -D
DAV options, thus eliminating them from the configuration.)

Here's the tail of the restore output:
