fails to convert bdb to fsfs

Hi All,

    We have a big svn repository (containing over 18000 revisions). We want
to convert it from bdb to fsfs. Because recently we found that this
repository needs to be recovered too often (almost every morning). And
fsfs seems save a lot of space.

    But we failed. "svnadmin load" on a certain revision, and it can be
reproduced. The failed revision is the same every time we tried.
svnadmin gave no error message, if I recalled correctly.

    Now we have another reason to convert. Today, after serval times of
sudden power off, the repository is corrupted and cannot be recovered.
We need to restore to some backup - thank god we backup every day.

   Our svn server is running on FreeBSD 4.x, with subversion 1.2.1, bdb-4.5.2

Gilbert
