No, using them both doesn't necessarily trigger the issue. It appears that mod_dav_svn alone can do it. I've been keeping track of this issue, and every one that I have ever seen has been a result of mod_dav_svn.

BDB is a good backend, but you really need to be careful about how you set it up. FSFS is far easier to manage/maintain. The good news is that this particular problem is recoverable. All the data is there, you just have to know how to put it together. I have a script that can do just that.
