Glad to hear FSFS worked out for you.

In the interests of protecting Sleepycat's reputation, I'd like to
emphasize that it was Subversion+BerkeleyDB, not BerkeleyDB by itself,
that was failing consistently for you. In other words, the issue is
really Subversion's usage of BDB; BDB itself is stable when used
precisely as Sleepycat's docs recommend.

Nothing wrong with your mail, I just feel bad that Sleepycat suffers
due to something that's not their fault, and try to compensate where
possible. In Subversion 1.2, FSFS will be the default, and people
should run into this problem a lot less often.
