svn: Can't read length line in file '/var/svn/repo/db/transactions/1189-1.txn/next-ids'

Our subversion server has just started returning this error when trying to commit to the repository. We have been using it successfully for months.

At first I thought it was a problem with the repository, but it verifies and dumps without complaining. After some more (unsuccessful) fiddling trying to get the repository to work, including importing the dump into a new repository which failed with the same error, I decided to create a new empty repository, gave anonymous write access and then tried a little co, add, commit test and get exactly the same error.

[root@office test]# cd /var/svn/test
[root@office test]# svnadmin create testdb
[root@office test]# vi /var/svn/test/testdb/conf/svnserve.conf # and set anon-access = write
[root@office test]# cd /tmp
[root_at_office tmp]# svn co svn://office/test/testdb
Checked out revision 0.
[root@office tmp]# cd testdb
[root@office testdb]# echo hello > hello
[root@office testdb]# svn add hello
[root@office testdb]# svn commit -m 'this is a test'
Adding hello
Transmitting file data .svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Can't read length line in file '/var/svn/test/test/db/transactions/0-1.txn/next-ids'

I am not aware of anything changing on the server software wise. We have run out of disk space a few times in the past few weeks but there isnt currently a disk space issue.

Kind of stuck at the moment and open to suggestions on how to investigate and/or correct this issue.
