Re: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL

Thanks for the info, but I think this may be a red herring.

For one thing, I was using svn last week without any problems, and our
sysadmin assures me that nothing has been changed in any way either with
svn or BDB in the past 6 months. So the difference between last week and
now can't be explained by changes in the installed svn or BDB software.

To make a *very *long story short, I created a brand-new repository and
populated it from a recent repository dump, and, once again, I was able to
use subversion normally. The error messages I was getting with practically
every svn command went away.

But after a couple of hours of normal svn use, I have now run into another
inexplicable svn failure. I've described this in a separate post ("svn died
for good mid-command...").
