Unless I'm greatly mistaken, BerkeleyDB only comes into play for
storing the repository. Working copies are always stored in the same
way, regardless of repository backend, and do not use BerkeleyDB.

BerkeleyDB and FSFS are the two available storage engines for the
repository on the server, but as I said, this has nothing to do with
how working copies of that repository are stored on the client. I
don't even think the Subversion client has any way of knowing what
storage engine a repository is using.

I'd recommend you use the latest version of Subversion, which is 1.2.3.
