On the one hand, you should not need to run recovery so often.

On the other hand, the video about Subversion 1.4 says that it will
(with BDB 4.4?) automatically run BDB recovery when needed, so you
may want to upgrade to that. Or switch to an FSFS repository which
cannot get wedged like that. Conversion instructions are in the FAQ.
