The default repository format in Subversion 1.2.0 and later is no
longer BerkeleyDB, but FSFS, which doesn't have these problems.

BDB is considered very reliable, but can be harder to maintain than
FSFS. If you don't know what you're doing, stick with FSFS, which is
also very reliable. For most people, FSFS should work great.
