Yes, there are problems with the way Subversion utilizes BDB. Yes,
we're working to fix the usage, and Sleepycat is working on changing
BDB to address some of these things as well.

Regardless (as has been said in the past): reading this list gives a
skewed view of reality. If I were reading this list, I would think BDB
is some horrible, unusable thing. My guess, though, is that 95% of
people using BDB repositories have no problems whatsoever. The 5% who
have problems tend to dominate the list.
