RE: Berkeley repository broken

According to that, I'm using version 4.4. I've been able to restore my
repository from a backup, and only lost the two revisions committed
yesterday, so the damage is limited. Additionally I switched the repository
to fsfs, hopefully that prevents these issues in the future.

What version of BDB do you have? Did you recently upgrade?

You can find out what version of BDB your repository thinks it should be
using by looking here:
