I have no experience with BDB repositories myself, but it does not
sound to me as if that would be safe.

According to the Subversion 1.4 release notes, that is the first
version that supports BDB 4.4. Since Subversion 1.4 is not released
yet, you're probably using Subversion 1.3.2, so I believe that means
you should use at most BDB 4.3.
