RE: On recent BDB usage issues

Nice to know, but, maybe, I have misunderstood something.
There has been a reply from Ben Collins-Sussman (on 5th of July) on
svnserve access
that seems to say that even with a single access method you could cause
because of (possibly) multiple server-side processes linked to libsvn_fs
accessing repository.
My undestanding of the problem is that the issues are not related to a
access method but to the way independent processes coordinate themselves
in the
usage of BDB.
Isn't it ?
