Repository locks up any tools

I'm using svnserve -d to host several subversion repositories on a
dedicated debian (woody) server. I'm the only one accessing these
repositories and all I did so far were fairly basic things like
checkout, import, commit, rename, delete, add.

Today, one of the repositories became inaccessible in a way that just
locks down any of the svn tools applied to it:
- when I tried to commit my changes, the svn executable just stop
without printing out a single line. I gave it several minutes, then gave up
- later, at home, I tried to update my working copy and the same
happened, svn just stopped. I waited for more than an hour this time;
normally it completes in around 10 seconds.
- trying to access the repository in any way using TortoiseSVN just
causes TortoiseSVN to become unresponsive for all times as well
- after retrying all that multiple times and ensuring the other
repositories still were perfectly working, I decided to run "svnadmin
verify" on the server. It just kept sitting there with 0% CPU usage and
could not even be shut down by a normal "kill <pid>"
- in a last attempt, I also ran "svnadmin recover" on the repository,
same effect. Doesn't print a single line, never completes.

Any idea what might have happened to this repository ?
