Fixing commit/import error

I've not worked on a project since before upgrading my distribution
(Slackware) earlier this year. Yesterday I went back to the project and
ensured it still worked with upgraded tool versions. It does. However, when
I tried to commit the changes the attempt failed:

[rshepard_at_salmo /data1/eikos]$ svn commit -m "New python, wxPython
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: Unable to open repository 'file:///usr2/svn-repos/eikos/trunk'
svn: Berkeley DB error for filesystem '/usr2/svn-repos/db' while opening

svn: Cannot allocate memory
svn: bdb: unable to allocate memory for mutex; resize mutex region

   I could not find any help in Mike Mason's "Pragmatic Version Control Using
Subversion" which I've had since it was published in 2005.

   The repository no longer has a directory for this project (named 'eikos'):

[rshepard_at_salmo /data1/eikos]$ ls /usr2/svn-repos/
README.txt conf/ dav/ db/ format* hooks/ locks/

so I tried to re-import the project and start counting versions again. That,
too, failed for the same reason. However, in the project directory's
.svn/entries I see data that appears to span the years I worked on the

   I would greatly appreciate help in learning what broke and what I do to
fix the problem(s) so I can once again use subversion-1.5.7, currently, for
this project.
