Strange Hangs on Debian.

Hi !

I am using Subversion on Debian Stable ( 3.1 ) where subversion is 1.1-4
( I also tried with unstable 1.2.0 the problems stay the same )

First let me tell that everything worked fine until yesterday, the only
change since then were some OS upgrades.
I thought that those could be the cause so i reverted my system to its
original install state ( without the upgrades ) but still the problems

Ok the problem itself is that anything that accesses the repository just
hangs.... This means accesssing via svnserve, performing status,
checkout, import anything basically. I am even unable to create new
repositories with svnadmin.. this also just hangs... I tried this with
my subversion user account ,but also with root just to etst in different
locations of the file system using both FSFS and Berkley DB

when for example i do svnadmin create /company/projects/test it hangs..
the same for svnadmin create /home/devuser/test

(devuser is my default user that owns every file in /company/ and has rw
rights on all files therein )
I also tried the above with "root" just to check if its a permission

( remember until yesterday this system ran without problems for 3
months, with much activity on svn repositories going on and over 20
hosted repositories in company/projects )

Accessing the already existing repostiories via a inetd tunneled
svnserve hangs client side as soon as a repository is accessed,
svnserver itself is working fine though ( telneted into it, it works )

Anyone has experienced something similar ? I could nto find anything on
the list, and the FAQ Tells about something similar on FreeBSD ... maybe
a recent debian stable upgrade caused the same behaviour ?

Hope anyone has some clues..... ( btw i also use the umask 002 wrap
scripts for everything svn related. and /company/projects/ is only ever
used by devuser and subversion, so no other processes wirting to it or
anything )
