Problem with subversion repository

Hi,
 
I'm having a problem with my subversion repository. While I was
working today, my repository suddenly stopped working and began
responding with an error. When I attempt to commit changes or update, I
get the following message:
 
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository
'file:///cenas1/home/wmak/dockit_repos/trunk/dockit/css'
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem
/cenas1/home/wmak/dockit_repos/db:
DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
svn: bdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery
 
Running 'svnadmin recover' on the repository fixes it somewhat, such
that I can update my code base without getting that error message
anymore. However, when I again try commiting I get:
 
svn commit -m "Tiny tweak"
Sending css/dockit.css
Transmitting file data .Abort
 1132 > svn commit -m "Tiny tweak" # here I try again
svn: Working copy '/cenas1/home/wmak/public_html/development/dockit'
locked
svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for
details)
1133 > svn cleanup
1134 > svn commit -m "Tiny tweak"
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository
'file:///cenas1/home/wmak/dockit_repos/trunk/dockit/css'
svn: Berkeley DB error while opening environment for filesystem
/cenas1/home/wmak/dockit_repos/db:
DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
svn: bdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery
 
And back to the earlier error. I'm not sure why the repository is
behaving this way. It may have something to do with the fact that I may
have been updating one code base while commit a change from another (as
the same user). I'm a little worried because the documentation claims
that svnadmin recover should fix most problems.
 
Any help/suggestions would be great. Thanks so much.
 
Wayne
