This error is generally indicative of something else being wrong. Can you
try running 'svnlook youngest' directly, as the same user your backup
process? I've seen this problem most often with wedged BDB repositories.
I'm not sure why you would be seeing this error with an FSFS repository,
unless the script is pulling in the wrong svnlook executable, or there is
something wrong with the repository itself.
