So, mod_dav_svn uses this auxiliary database called the 'activity db'.
 It's a little dbm file inside the repository in the dav subdirectory
on disk. It appears that the dbm file is corrupted. Fortunately, no
long-lived data is stored there, so you should be able to shut down
your server, delete that dbm file, and restart it and everything
should work again.
