<help>Database is Wedged for the 5th time. Diagnostics, anyone?

Hi, my svn server just went down for the 5th time. Each time, I have
been amazed at the lack of diagnostic information available to me.
There is nothing in the logs, and the only tool I have at my disposal is
the admin recovery which will fix my db in somewhere between 20 minutes
and 16 hours. Needless to say, this is not the position I want to be
in. Does anyone have any ideas on routine maintenance and diagnostic
tools I can use to work on this problem?

Server:
svn: version 1.1.2 (r12471) compiled Oct 31
2004, 08:30:56
protocols supported: svnserve [read/write] & WebDav [read only]
Apache: 2.0.52
OS: Linux 2.4.20-8
Notes:
        we also use WebSVN
        we deltify after each check-in. I'm told this will do no harm
and do no good either.

        excerpt from my post-commit log
        # Deltify predecessors of things changed in this revision.
        date >> /home/svn/commit.log
        (nice -2 /usr/local/bin/svnadmin deltify "$REPOS" -r "$REV" >>
/home/svn/commit.log 2>&1 ) &
        echo "-----------------" >> /home/svn/commit.log

Clients:
svn 1.1.1 on Win32, MacOS X and Linux
svn 1.1.2, 1.1.3 on Win32

Permissions state that all is owned by the svn user
Both Apache and svnserve are run as the svn user

Questions:
- is anyone using the svnserve on Linux with the BerkeleyDB?
        if so, how large is your environment?
      how much activity do you have in terms of commits per day?
- has anyone had problems with svnserve
- has anyone added any logging to their environment and if so how?

Thanks for the help.
