subversion 1.1.4 and i tried to use 1.2.0rc2 - the same problem...

type of repo is fsfs (i also tried to make bdb repo with the same
effect) Actually, I made a bdb repo about a week ago, and succesfully
worked with it during a week. after this, it seems broken (any SVN
client hangs then tryinng to connect this repo thru the server, and
works fine with access thru file:/// schema), 'svnadmin recover' can't
to fix this problem.

svnserve.conf and users-passwords looks exactly like yours :) if i make
a tipo in it, or in passwd file, where my users and passwords data is -
subversion tells me about my mistake :)

yes, it's my tipo in message, of course i'm trying to run 'svnserve -d
-r /path/to/repo'
