SUMMARY: Commit Error-Can't close activity db: Internal Error

ORIGINAL PROBLEM:
>I have svn 1.3.2 (no BDB) running on an xserve (10.4.7) with Apache
2.2.3
> (+SSL, +LDAP). I can check out a repository, update it, but when I
try to
> commit, I get the following error:
> "svn-commit.2.tmp" 4L, 48210C written
> isvn: Commit failed (details follow):
> svn: Can't close activity db: Internal error

SOLUTION:
Delete the files in </my_repository/dav>. I used rsync to copy the
files from a Linux Server. There were two files in /dav ---
activities.dir and activities.pag. After deleting those two files the
commits were successful.

THANKS:
To Garrett Rooney:
>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.
