db_recover hangs, svnadmin recover hangs, svn import caused problems

how do i kill db_recover in a safe way please, that is, such that i do
not cause problems with data integrity?
Tried to kill it, because running for over 10 hours and seems hanging,
but it will not die:
# ps -aux | grep db_recover
root 27421 17.2 1.0 10316 8216 ? R Aug24 143:17
db_recover -vec -h db
root 28443 0.0 0.0 3584 636 pts/4 S 05:12 0:00 grep db_recover

Read through the mailing list for hours, and the manual, tried all
kind of things, i might explain later.

Also, the manual says "Become the user who owns and manages the
repository" in telling how to recover. Not clear to me how to do that.
If i do:
# ls -lR
then it shows that "apache" is the user owning all files/directories
in the repository, but if i do:
# su -l apache
it says that "This account is currently not available."

Been running svn for two years no problem on linux red hat 9. Svn
version is 0.23.0 (r5972), compiled May 21 2003, 13:25:56.

This whole problem started after i did a local svn import of some new
code to our existing repository logged as root. Then i got the
DB_RUNRECOVERY error on the web page (we use svn with Apache and SSL).
But, again, i will explain all that later if i can't get out of this.
