   I suppose that part of my problem with svn was my looking at it as a tool
that was used intensively during earlier stages of application development,
then not used for a long time. Other than security upgrades I paid no
attention to any changes that occurred. As a result I was unaware of the
change in default backends and of the issues that could arise with BDB.

   Because I have the completed portion of the application working it was no
big deal to remove the old repository and start over using a fresh one. Just
to ensure no future issues, I specified the fs-type during the creation.
