I've said this before, and I'll no doubt say it again. BDB, as svn uses
it, is a crock of crap, avoid at all costs.

Cue the usual "it's not BDB's fault, it's the way svn uses it".

I'm relatively new to the list but I'd say that 90% plus of the problems
reported here are have one of two common factors:

1) People using Redhat
2) People using BDB

It can't be much of a co-incidence that 1.2 uses fsfs as the default
repo type. How about a news release strongly recommending that all BDB
users switch to fsfs as soon as possible?
