About every few days and at least once a week Subversion has broken something for itself and will only respond after svnadmin recover has been executed. As this requires me to manually shutdown the Apache server to prevent simultanous access, it has become a definite show-stopper. This issue has been present since 0.37 up to and including 1.0.5. I am running Subversion on a Gentoo Linux box and the all repository access occurs through WebDAV (Apache2 and mod_svn). If there are any logging options or other mechanisms I can enable in order to provide more details on the problem, or of I can otherwise be helpful in troubleshooting this, let me know. It's a major problem for me and I would really like to see it solved.
