Thanks for your effort! I'll use gzip or bzip2 next time ;-)

I just tried running 'recover' on the repository using my windows
machine (didn't try it before because I was under the impression that
linux repositories didn't work on windows) and it successfully
completed. Now, after a quick dump and re-load everything seems to be in
order again.

Guess that's another indication that I really did screw up my
installation. I built and installed Berkeley DB 4.3 on this machine some
time ago, could subversion by any chance be using this version instead
of the one from the package dependency ?

I had already thought of that and went as far as to reboot my server,
without a change. Even after extracting the .rar archive to a second
directory, the repository kept locking up.
