I don't know why you're having that problem or how to solve it. But I
can say that you should update to Subversion 1.4.4, which should
include many many bug fixes over what you have in 1.1.4. Also, since
1.2.0, BDB is no longer the default; FSFS now is. With FSFS, you
cannot experience BDB errors like this. So, one way to work around
the problem would be to convert your BDB repository to FSFS.
