No, BDB doesn't have problems with multiple access methods (or at least
any problems that FSFS doesn't have). You run into problems when process
A creates files in the repository (usually logs for BDB) that are
unreadable/unwriteable for process B. This is (as far as I understand)
MORE likely to happen with FSFS, because EVERY COMMIT is GUARANTEED to
create one or more new files in the repository, while BDB logfiles are
only created when the last one fills up.

I've taken my information from the book
and if I've misinterpreted something here, please feel free to correct me.
