--bdb-log-keep is right, but note that a) adding a fiew small files
won't fill a log file, and b) a log file doesn't "become" unused just
because its' filled up, a database checkpoint must happen first.

Those are BDB environment (shared-memory) files. Their format has
changed from 4.2 to 4.3, so they have to be removed during the upgrade.
Unfortunately, "svnadmin recover" won't do that for you (or rather,
it'll remove them, but then recreate them).
