Newbie question: svn [most commands] hangs without error

Hi subversion users-

I'm very new to subversion - just started managing code with it
yesterday - and I'm having some trouble I hope you can help me with. I
apologize in advance if this has already been covered here. I have
Google searched and also searched the mailing list archives, but not
much seems applicable.

I am running subversion 1.1.3 on my Gentoo Linux box (Kernel 2.6.10-r4,
glibc 2.3.4, bash 2.05) and starting off with a very simple repository
located in a subdir of my home directory. The repository manages less
than 10 files, including source files and some debug files created by
the IDE I'm using. The repository is on my local machine, I am the only
user accessing it, and thus far I've only been using the file:/// access

Everything was working great until earlier tonight. When I tried to do a
`svn commit -m "some_message"` it hung without any output. Same goes
without the `-m` switch, using the nano editor to enter my log message.
It sat for at least 2 minutes. I tried killing the process with `killall
svn` in another shell, but was forced to explicitly kill the process
with `kill -9 [process-number]" in order to get my shell back.

So far, it has hung with `svn commit` and `svn list` commands, but works
fine with `svn status` and `svn cleanup` commands. This seems to
indicate it has issues only when it tries to access the repository.
Speaking of `svn cleanup`, this problem still occurs after my working
copy has been cleaned up.

I'm not sure where to begin; I'd like to either find a log file or up
the verbosity of the command so I can learn where the breakage is. Any

Thanks much in advance,
Dave Rea
