Repository corruption was one of the major headaches when we
used SVN from ver. 0.27 to 1.0 and one of the reasons to stop
general use at that point. That said we returned at ver. 1.2 or 1.3
and found a matured product. We never had a corrupted repository
ever since (not only SVN had matured in the period between, but
also Berkeley had a new version out by then). We never used
FSFS which I think was SVN's own answer to the database
issues. We run a small peer-to-peer LAN on Win2K/XP and
version several web projects. The repository is accessed through
Apache 2.0., GUI client Tortoisesvn.
