Although given that svn is using BDB in a legitimate manner (albeit
unusual) and BDB is failing to cope with it, this would suggest a flaw
in BDB - though I recognise that Sleepycat are endeavouring to fix it.

That said, I'm using a c. 2GB, 2000 revision BDB back end with no
problems at all (he says, tempting fate).
