I use subversion 1.1.x on a redhat 9.0 widh bdb 4.2 since a year and
I had a lot of crashes with that box (memory issues, HD issues, etc)
and only once problem which I could recover with svadmin.

But when I read all these horror stories, I seriously think, that
when I will switch my repository from this server to the new one,
that I will change to FSFS.
